Montpelier Mile

A hot day for the Mile but a record (I think) 252 runners. Here are results.  Lots of CVR runners.  Most noteworthy are Allie Nerenberg (2nd overall) and Richarda Ericson (3rd overall).  The CVR/ORO Race Series standings are updated through the Mile, here they are.  Let Jim Flint know if you see any errors or omissions.  

Bear Swamp Run is Saturday!

Then the next race series race (8th in the series) is the Bear Swamp Runthis Saturday, July 13th at 9am.   This is the 41st annual running of this race, which has been on different days over the years but still is the same hilly dirt road course leaving from Rumney School in Middlesex.  It’s only $10!

Tim Noonan needs a few more volunteers!  Please email Tim if you can help.

Next CVR Meeting and Newsletter Deadline

The next CVR meeting will be Monday, August 12 in Craftsbury.  We will combine this with a summer picnic. More details to follow.

That means there is a newsletter coming up.  Please send your contributions to Maryke Gillis by August 7.
