CVR Birthdays This Week
Happy Birthday this week to: June Burr, Henry Busetti, Laura Tracy, Paul Deluca, Diane Baker, Alex Stetter (new AG!), and Sean Leahy


What’s up with all the fast Matthews? 3 of the top 4 (that is the top 3 males!) at Paul Mailman 10 Miler. See results on cvrunners.org for the 10 Miler and the 5K.

Our next CVR/ORS Race Series Event is the Montpelier Mile. We still need 3 more volunteers to help the timing company with gathering chips at the end and posting results. It is a much easier job than the manual timing we’ve done in the past. If you can help out, let me know. Pre-Registration ends July 1–that is this coming Saturday! You could race both Bear Swamp and Barre Heritage Festival 5K with the $10 you save by pre-registering.

The day after the Montpelier Mile is July 4, but also a Tuesday. Darragh says she will be there as usual at 5:30 for Fun Run, so it is on for the holiday. Maybe some who usually have trouble getting to it can participateon July 4 while others may be away or racing elsewhere on the holiday.

Jim Flint has compiled the results through Capitol City Stampede for the CVR/ORS series –see how you are doing HERE.

Register soon for the July 9 Stowe 8 Miler and Flying Onion 5K, but race day only on July 15 for the 39th Annual Bear Swamp 5.7 Mile Race. They are races 6 and 7 in the CVR/ORS Series out of 12 total, which means half the opportunities to earn points will have passed.
Looking ahead: Save 50% by registering early (by July 22) for Barre Heritage 5K on July 30!

Leafpeepers Half Marathon and 5K registration is up! Sign up early here!
We have in the works a CVR/ORS Leafpeepers training group to be coached by Richarda Ericson. Runs will be Saturday mornings from ORS. Full details coming soon!


CVR BABY BOOM!

Anna Welts Brady joined CVR as the newest runner-to-be on June 17, 2017 weighing 7 lbs 12 oz. Leslie reports that both she and Anna are doing great.
