CVR News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week!

Happy Birthday to: Ellen Krajweski. Darrel Lasell and Brynn Bushey (new AG!)

Beth Daut, son Ben and daughter-in-law Carey at the Dead Horse Ultra in Moab, Utah this past weekend

Fallen Leaves 5k’s

The last Fallen Leaves 5K was this Saturday. Possibly the coldest ever, but 44 runners. Results are here.
Congratulations to George Aitken and Richarda Ericson who won the men’s and women’s races, respectively.

Final Race Series Standings

The CVR/ORO Race Series is now final.  Here are the final standings.  If you have questions or see corrections, contact Jim Flint.


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 CVR/ORO Race Series-Mixed Terrain Series

At the November meeting, the club approved a new series within a series: the “Mixed Terrain” series.  This is related to the regular CVR/ORO Race Series but also different.  The idea is to get runners who normally run roads to try some races that are all or part easy trails.  As incentive, any runner that runs all the Mixed Terrain races gets a special shirt (to be unveiled later).  The five races are: Barre Heritage 5K Trail Race (CVR), Bear Swamp Run (CVR), Genny Tenny, Groton Forest 10K (CVR-new for 2020) and GMAA’s Equinox Trail 10K.

CVR Ultra and Trail Racing Success

A couple of CVR members went racing in warmer climates and had success the past two weekends.  Beth Daut was in Utah as noted in the photo above and came away with an AG win in the 30K at the Dead Horse Ultra in Moab, UT.  This is a big event as ultras go (about 800), and son Ben ran the 50k, while Beth and Carey did the 30k.

Todd Sears went down to the inaugural Shakori Running Festival in Pittsboro, NC. He ran the longest event (the 40 mile) and was 1st overall, in just over 6 hours.  Congratulations!  Here is his race report about the event.

Race Calendar

You will note that the race calendar is expanded this week due to the number of turkey trot events.  Thanks to Darell Lasell for all the info.  I had no idea there were this many!  
Also don’t forget the first of December is the Santa Run in Burlington (it is below too). More of a spectacle than a race, it is something you have to see to believe.

And don’t forget this weekend is the last for the Cabot sock sale in Northfield!
