Newsletter
It won’t be long before the next newsletter. If you have some running adventures from this summer that would make a good article, please write it up and send it to Maryke Gillis. She wants your submissions by October 15.

Leaf Peepers
This Sunday the half marathon kicks off at 11am and the 5K at 11:10. Looks like good weather but not much leaf color yet. The leaf peeping will have to wait but you can still run. Good luck to everyone!

Race Series Standings
Jim Flint has been busy updating the standings through Sodom Pond so now you know where you stand. Two more races to go, Leaf Peepers and Autumn Onion.

Next Club Meeting
It is Monday, November 5. Location TBD.

Autumn Onion 5K
The race is set for October 28 (Sunday). Don’t have a time and registration info yet, but Onion River Outdoors will be presenting the race again this year. So get your costume ready for the last CVR/ORO Race Series event!

Groton Forest Trail Race
Last week’s link didn’t work, here is this one should be better. Here are results for the 15 mile and here for the 26.5. Congratulations to Mark Howard and Jill Sudhoff-Guerin for a great first time event with 92 participants!

Leaf Peepers
The club’s main event is approaching on Sunday, September 30. Registration will be closing next week. Lots of volunteers are needed, so if you would like to help, please contact volunteer coordinator June Burr. Register for the half or 5k.

Race Report
Three CVR members went to Erie, PA on September 9 to run the Erie Marathon. Generally billed as flat and fast and an easy Boston qualifier, it was anything but this year, according to Phil Krajewski. Phil reports 20mph winds and little tail wind. But it didn’t stop him from running a second place AG time in 3:38:24. Even though he was 2nd, he broke the AG course record (as did 1st place). Also running well was Darrell Lasell at 3:58:58 and Manny Sainz at 4:04:25 (PRs for both). Full results

Groton Forest Trail Run this Saturday!


CVR Birthdays this Week!
Happy Birthday to: Donna Smyers, Jeff Johnson, Zoe Colvin, and Bodhi Evans


NSB 5k and 1 Mile
Results from this past weekend’s race.

Groton Forest Trail Race
Good luck to all participating this Saturday in the inaugural event!

Sodom Pond
The next race in the CVR/ORO Race Series is the Sodom Pond 4 Mile at 6pm on Wednesday, September 12, in Adamant.

Volunteers are needed for this race. If you can help, please email Tim Noonan.

Leaf Peepers
The club’s main event is approaching on Sunday, September 30. Probably the last year for the tough Perry Hill/Waterbury Center course and definitely the swansong for long time race director Roger Cranse. So it would be awesome if every club member either ran or volunteered on September 30. Lots of volunteers are needed, so if you would like to help, please contact volunteer coordinator June Burr. Click here to register for the half or 5k.
