CVR News and Notes


CVR Birthdays this week:

Happy Birthday to: Kimberly Caldwell, Lori LaCroix, James Lehneman

Hi CVR Members,

Last week I was interviewed by Gregory Gerdel of “The Bridge” about virtual running and what CVR is doing to motivate its members. I discussed with him the Social Distancing Virtual Run Series and the new Virtual Participation Race Series. It was published this week, “Runners Find Virtual Motivation“. Click on the title to read the article.

Donna Smyers is promoting the Virtual Suffrage Scramble 5K to commemorate 100 years of women having the right to vote and ~50 years with the right to run. Proceeds and additional donations will go to the NAACP in VT to help fund expansion of voter registration, education and access for historically disenfranchised communities of color. VSCA and CVR are encouraging women and men all over VT to run a 5K the week of August 8-15 (Primary week in VT) wearing the commemorative yellow “Votes for Women 1920–Votes for All 2020” sash that is included with your entry. For more information on the event see:  http://cvrunners.org/cvr-races/suffrage-scramble/  and sign up onhttps://www.letsdothis.com/us/e/suffrage-scramble-5k-virtual-event-187864

For the Virtual Participation Race Series the number of registrants have increased to 33 runners that are participating or tend to participate. 37 results have been entered. The Paul Mailman 5K continues to be the most popular event with 10 but the Montpelier Mile is a surprisingly close 2nd with 9 results. Chris Andresen now has the most participation at 6 with Joe Merill and John Martin close behind at 5.
