CVR News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week!

Happy Birthday to: Ann Bushey, Michael Chernick and Marian Wolz


As you know, just about every race anywhere through the end of April is cancelled or postponed.  For CVR, that means the 2nd race in our race series, Kaynor’s Sap Run, originally scheduled for this weekend, is cancelled.  And now race series race number three, Paul Mailman 10 mile and 5K on April 25, is postponed.  The Mutt Strutt on April 19 is cancelled.  We will attempt to find an alternate date for the 10 Miler but just too soon to know at this point.  Our race series rules say cancelled races are not replaced in the series.  We will evaluate the race series once things get going again and see what makes sense for this year.


As promised, here is the March newsletter!  This is Maryke Gillis‘s last newsletter so be sure to thank her for two years of great content!

Winter Long Run

There was not a Winter Long Run planned this week since we were planning to run Kaynor’s Sap Run on Sunday.  Now that it is cancelled we still are not having a long run.  

CVR Annual Meeting

Postponed as you should already know.  CVR officer elections will happen before the end of our March 31 year, so stay tuned!  You will vote through MailChimp once we have it all set.

Membership Renewal Time

Our memberships expire on March 31.  Don’t be an April Fool-renew your membership!  You can do it right now, click here.  

Something to watch at home

Since there are no sports to watch now, we have to look at re-runs.  Here is a good one. This is several weeks ago but a short race to watch (indoor mile).  Vermont native and UNH graduate Elle Purrier sets the indoor mile record at Millrose Games in New York.
