News and Notes from Donna

News You Can Use!

Hi All,

The Barre Heritage 5K looks like they had a pretty good turnout on a nice day. I notice an interesting weird skewing of participants from the results: Female participants under 50=22, Males under 50=3, Males over 50=6, Females over 50=0. What explains that? There were plenty of over 50 women racing with me at Colchester Triathlon that day. Results for Barre Heritage are up on CVRUNNERS.ORG. Thanks to new RD Jackie Jancaitis from the Rehab Gym and her great crew of volunteers. I didn’t hear of anybody getting lost this year.

Your next chance for CVR/ORS points is the Berlin Pond 5 Miler on August 18, followed by Northfield Savings Bank 5K/1 Mile on Sept 3. And of course more points to be had if you sign up soon for Leafpeepers 5K or Half Marathon. I know you love that hill, but if not, do the 5K and only do a small part of the hill.
Jim Flint has worked hard to get the CVR/ORS standings updated for you to check out. Be sure to contact him if you see any errors in your score/participation. If you don’t see an X next to your name, time to get serious and sign up to volunteer soon (or let us know if you volunteered and it isn’t checked)!
