CVR Birthdays This Week
Happy Birthday this week to: June Burr, Henry Busetti, Laura Tracy, Paul Deluca, Diane Baker, Alex Stetter (new AG!), and Sean Leahy

What’s up with all the fast Matthews? 3 of the top 4 (that is the top 3 males!) at Paul Mailman 10 Miler. See results on for the 10 Miler and the 5K.

Our next CVR/ORS Race Series Event is the Montpelier Mile. We still need 3 more volunteers to help the timing company with gathering chips at the end and posting results. It is a much easier job than the manual timing we’ve done in the past. If you can help out, let me know. Pre-Registration ends July 1–that is this coming Saturday! You could race both Bear Swamp and Barre Heritage Festival 5K with the $10 you save by pre-registering.

The day after the Montpelier Mile is July 4, but also a Tuesday. Darragh says she will be there as usual at 5:30 for Fun Run, so it is on for the holiday. Maybe some who usually have trouble getting to it can participateon July 4 while others may be away or racing elsewhere on the holiday.

Jim Flint has compiled the results through Capitol City Stampede for the CVR/ORS series –see how you are doing HERE.

Register soon for the July 9 Stowe 8 Miler and Flying Onion 5K, but race day only on July 15 for the 39th Annual Bear Swamp 5.7 Mile Race. They are races 6 and 7 in the CVR/ORS Series out of 12 total, which means half the opportunities to earn points will have passed.
Looking ahead: Save 50% by registering early (by July 22) for Barre Heritage 5K on July 30!

Leafpeepers Half Marathon and 5K registration is up! Sign up early here!
We have in the works a CVR/ORS Leafpeepers training group to be coached by Richarda Ericson. Runs will be Saturday mornings from ORS. Full details coming soon!


Anna Welts Brady joined CVR as the newest runner-to-be on June 17, 2017 weighing 7 lbs 12 oz. Leslie reports that both she and Anna are doing great.
