Kaynor’s Sap Run

GMAA’s Kaynor’s SapRun. Results are here.  And photos are here.  At least 24 CVR members ran in the race in an attempt to get some early season race series points.  Road conditions were OK with just a little snow and mud. 

Paul Mailman and 5k Changes

This is the next race series race on Saturday, April 27.  Note that there will be a new location for the start and finish this year. The school track is not available due to another event. We plan to move the parking, registration, start and finish next door to the Department of Labor parking lot (aka the Fun Run start). This will require some tweaking of the race course.  Start time is still 8:45am.  Never to early to ask for volunteers, so if you are available let me know.
