Winter long runs

Saturday’s Winter Long Run will be at 9:30 AM at the Red Hen in Middlesex.  The host will be yours truly; email with questions.  Ideally we will run on dirt roads in Middlesex Center but this is subject to conditions.

New Year’s Eve 5K

The first race in the 2020 CVR/Onion River Outdoors race series was on Tuesday. Temperatures were relatively mild but there was the usual coating of snow. A total of 97 runners celebrated the end of the year.  Results are here.  Thanks to race director Manny Sainz and the volunteers!  If anyone has photos, send them to me and I can put them in next week.

Annual Awards Dinner and Volunteer Recognition

The annual dinner will be Thursday, January 23 at the Steak House in Berlin.  The RSVP email should be coming out next week.
