CVR News and Notes


CVR Birthdays this week!

Happy Birthday to: Shawn Bryan, Sandy Colvin, Jon Copans


Hi CVR Members,

The Be Smart, Be Safe phase of the return to normalcy continues with our governor continuing to open the spigot more each week. The limitation for group gatherings has been increased to 25 with perhaps some further opening in the future. The race committee will be meeting this week along with the race directors to discuss what our options are for the remainder of the year. I will report on that next week.

In the meantime, the CVR Virtual Social Distance Run Series completed its 7th week. There have now been 261 finishers through week 7. There is one more week to go! Give this series a great send off by registering for the final weekend. Click here CVR Run Series

I did some analytics on the data through week 7. The data from the system was not very clean and in the first couple of weeks there were some issues with participants either trying to register or loading their results. I did the best I could to clean it but am sure there are still errors in it and not everything has been captured correctly. But here are some details about the series based on that.

The following is the breakdown of participation over the 7 weeks. There have been 48 event opportunities and the clear winner has been the 5K with 50% of the participants completing this event.

I created a neat dashboard based on the database. The dashboard is interactive and you can view it in several different ways. Click on this link to go to the dashboard CVR Virtual Run Series Dashboard. There are 2 pages to the dashboard. Go to the bottom of the screen and you will see where to go to page 2.

As the virtual run series is coming to an end, perhaps some of you may have some interesting stories you would like to share with the club. Please pass them on to me and I will include them in next week’s news and notes.

My selected pictures this week are around the CRV Virtual Series hat.
