CVR News and Notes


CVR Birthdays this week!

Happy Birthday to: Michael Chartrand, Patty Folz, Alison Grogan, Jackie Jancaitis, Gordon MacFarland, Jane Miller-Arsenault

We continue this week in the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” protocol and I believe this week we will learn from Governor Scott how far this may be extended. You may have already read many articles about how to social distance and stay safe, but I would like to share with you RRCA’s Recommendations for runners during social distancing. As you know, we are a member of RRCA and follow their guidelines. Just click on the link.

Thank you to those who responded to me with their ideas regarding virtual racing. We appreciate them. We have formed a new race committee who will begin this week to discuss various options for the remainder of this year with the hope of making up most of the postponed events. We will also be discussing virtual racing ideas. Stay tuned in the next week or so what may come out of those meetings.

Since I do not have a lot of fun things at the moment to talk about or promote I would like to ask that if you have some fun and interesting bits of information that can be shared with everyone, please pass them on to me, by clicking on my name Manny.

Run Safely!!
