CVR Members in the news

Colin Pope, a relatively new member to CVR sent me his exciting news this week about his adventures becoming the 12th person to do the White Mountain Direttissima. This is a 48 mountain, 220 miles with 88,000 ft. of elevation gain. You can read about it at this WCAX-TV link Managing the White Mountains. Congratulations Colin!

CVR Members on the Run

This weekend is the Unplugged Half Marathon which I assume many CVR runners will be participating in…including myself. The event will be divided into several starts both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, CVR members April Farnham and Mark Howard will be running the Bayley Hazen, a run from Wells River to Jay Peak. Hopefully I will receive a lot of great stories and pictures I can share in next week’s news and notes! Good luck to all runners!!
