CVR Birthdays this Week!

I know I wasn’t going to write this week, but just a few things popped up…
so this week’s birthdays for a 2nd time:
Happy Birthday to: Will Jones, Jill Aspinall (New AG!), Brynn Bushey, Asa Richardson-Skinder, Hartley Bingham, & Leif Richardson


Important Correction!!

Annual Volunteer and Series Awards Dinner, Thursday January 25 at the Steakhouse in Berlin. I apologize for the error last week.


Final 2017 CVR/ORS Series Results are now posted. 65 people remain after 35 non-volunteers disappeared, but only one person formerly winning is gone. An amazing coincidence is that we have 28 Females and 37 Males in this year’s final tally which appears to be exactly the same as in 2016. Note we call this final, but you have until Dec 15 to let us know of any corrections. If you disappeared and you did volunteer, please contact Jim Flint and/or the Race Director for whom you volunteered ASAP.

Results for the final 2017 Fallen Leaves 5K are posted.

A Regular Tuesday Group run is now planned for Montpelier at 5pm. Starting Nov 28, it will meet at the Fun Run start. See below for info.

Roger Cranse shared an interesting article on race entry numbers:
