Your generosity is appreciated by these future CVR members!
I finally did register for the Stowe 8 Miler. It has been a long time since I’ve run it. It never fit well with triathlon season, but I’ve got to contribute to the team total and there aren’t any really important tri’s I want to do that weekend. $250 goes to the biggest total team, so you can be as slow as you want and can run the 5K and you get CVR/ORS race series points and help CVR in the contest. So what is your excuse? Continue reading Message from Donna→
Coming off of the US Olympic Trials Marathon, followed by the Boston Marathon, Leah Frost smashed her 2015 record by almost 8 minutes, finishing the hilly 20 Miler course in 2:15:34. Leah finished 1st overall, beating the first male relay team of Gavin Boyles and Mack Gardner-Morse by 50 seconds. The first male finisher was Jonathon Rea from Stowe in 2:17:17. The most hotly contested age group was the 50-59 women where Dot Martin edged out Sue Hackney in 2:39:51 vs 2:40:25. All participants enjoyed the post race feed of a variety of soups, bread, cheese and cookies. Proceeds benefit the Adamant Music School which hosts this scenic run.
Black flies were out in force to hassle the volunteers who valiantly stayed out there with the assistance of copious insect repellant.
Many thanks to the large volunteer force including:
Sigh Searles, Greg Wight, John Kaeding, June Burr, John Martin, Sean and Amy Murphy, Sue Emmons, Sarah Drapp, Newton Baker, Pam and Dave Erickson, Tim Noonan and Barb Flint.
