NSB Race this weekend!

Next race up is the Northfield Savings Bank 5K and 1 mile on Saturday, August 31. The 1 mile is for 13 years and under only and is a  great chance for runners in that age group to get some race series points.  Also, the 5K is the Vermont Senior Games 5k and if you qualify (age 50 or over), make sure you sign up for the Vermont Senior Games when you register.  Registration is here.On line registration closes Friday.

Groton Forest Trail Run

Groton Forest Trail Run  is Saturday, September 7.  Registration is still open, here it is.  Don’t delay, it closes September 1. 

Mark Howard could use some volunteers to help with sweeping the course after the runners have come through.  If this sounds interesting (you’ll get some mile in), contact Mark.

Genny Tenny Ten Mile

Sunday, September 15 is the second annual Genny Tenny Ten Mile, in Craftsbury. This year it is in the CVR/ORO Race Series.  On line registration is available here.  Note that Sunday the 15th is the correct date; the ORO Race Series poster shows the 14th as the date but that is wrong as the poster was done before we knew the race date.  Just a head’s up in case you saw the poster with the wrong date.  Otherwise, go to the race on Sunday the 15th!   It is point to point from Craftsbury to Albany on dirt roads and proceeds support re-opening the Albany General Store.

Leaf Peepers

If you plan on running either the half or 5K at Leaf Peepers (October 6), you should sign up before September 1 as prices increase.  If you don’t plan to run, you should volunteer.  Contact June Burr if you can help.

GMC Tribute to Scott Skinner

The Green Mountain Club Montpelier section newsletter has a nice tribute to Scott Skinner, see it here (on page 2). Scott was a long-time CVR member among many other things (as you can see from the tribute).
