Worcester 4-Miler

The 4th annual Worcester 4-Miler was held Sunday, June 19 in Worcester. There were 7 finishers in the 4-mile challenge plus another 3 finishers in the 2-mile fun run. With the light turnout, perhaps you should have run. It may have been your year to win…if you happen to be faster than Thorin Markison! Anna Berg also ran. Thanks to race director Roy Belcher for hosting the event.

Mount Washington Road Race

The 56th annual Mount Washington Road Race was held Saturday, June 18 at some mountain in New Hampshire. There were 1,153 finishers. The race is 7.6 miles and supposedly has a big hill in it somewhere. From observation of folks I know, a “good” result is a time that is slightly faster than a good-for-you half-marathon time.

The fastest CVR member was Donna Smyers in 1:32:30 for 1st F 55-59. Donna also won some cash in the age-graded female masters competition. She earned 2nd place behind a 65-year-old woman who ran 1:40:29. Mike Gillis ran 1:51:46. Although his time was quite a bit slower than last year, the streak lives on! This was Mike’s 33rd consecutive finish at this event. Dot Helling ran 2:02:44. (The top 2 guys finished in under an hour. That is some serious uphill moving!)

Chicken Farmer 5k

The Chicken Farmer 5k was held Saturday, June 18 in Newbury, NH. There were 136 finishers. Bob Howe was the top Vermonter in 29:50. I have so many questions about this event. Perhaps Bob will write a newsletter article?

Elmore Practice Triathlon #1

The Elmore Practice Triathlon #1 was held Thursday, June 16 in Elmore. There were 16 finishers plus 1 relay team. This low-key event consists of a 1/4-mile swim, a 9.7-mile bike and a 2.5-mile run. CVR was well-represented. Thorin Markison was 1st overall. (Rumor has it that Thorin had to cycle standing up because he had not adjusted his seat post properly.) Other CVR participants included Roy Belcher, John Valentine, Beth Daut, Kathleen Bryant, Ann Bushey and Anna Berg.
