News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this Week!

Happy Birthday to: Steve Airoldi, Kate Vanden Bergh and Heather Voisin.

4 CVR runners brave last week’s cold for Wednesday night speedwork

Website Refresh

Check out the new design of the CVR Website! (  Lots of new photos and a newsletter archive, back to 1980 (from the files of Bob Murphy). Thanks to John Hackney for maintaining and improving the website!

The newsletter archive is particularly interesting.  Below I have included a short article from the Nov/Dec 1980 newsletter.  Also in that newsletter is a race report on the Berlin Pond Couples Race, held in October.  Interesting reading, with separate men’s and women’s starts and encounters with bad motorists (nothing changes).

Winter Long Run

This week’s Winter Long Run will leave from the City Center in Montpelier at 9:30am.  For more information or to tell him you will be there, contact this week’s host Jeff Prescott.

Annual Meeting

The CVR Annual Meeting will be Sunday, March 17.  Save the date.  Time and place TBA.


Below is an article from the November/December 1980 newsletter about Winter Fun runs. Who knew we had them back then, too?
