Fallen Leaves 5K’s
The last Fallen Leaves 5K is this Saturday! The race begins on the Montpelier High School track at 9am. Just $5! The second one this past Saturday had a good turnout despite the cold, with 47 runners. Results are here.
Congratulations to Alex Jinks and Dylan Broderick won the men’s and women’s races, respectively.
Last Saturday to volunteer for the 2019 Race Series! After Saturday, the series will be final. And last to chance to volunteer if you want to go the Annual Volunteer and Awards Dinner for free! Remember you need to have volunteered in the 2019 race season to get a free dinner.
Don’t forget the CVR Clothing Store is open until November 25. Place orders on the site and they will be delivered to Richarda Ericson for distribution the week of December 9.
2020 Races and the CVR/ORO Race Series
At the club meeting last week, we approved the slate of races to be sponsored by the club as well as the races for the race series (which include some GMAA races). Here is the list, note that some of the dates are tentative. The race series rules will be the same as 2019 (best 6 races and points earned in the age group based on top CVR member). Note that there is one more race this year! The race series event changes are two: Barre Heritage Festival 5K Trail Race will replace Barre Town Spring Run 5k (don’t worry, we are still having the race; it just isn’t in the series this year), and GMAA’s Equinox 10K Trail Race will replace the NSB 1 Mile Kid’s Race. And there will be a new feature this year which I will explain next week: the “Mixed Terrain” series. Also next week, I will discuss the new race series awards scheme for next year.
