Hi CVR Members,

Recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic has entered a new phase and it is now being called “Be Smart, Be Safe”. The governor has turned the spigot further and is allowing for groups of 10 people to be together as long as physical distancing remains at 6 feet and other guidelines are followed. The race committee met this week and discussed our future race series and what the opportunities are for us. There is an expectation from the governor that by June 1st groups of 25 people may be allowed. With 6 feet distancing still in place and the other guidelines that need to be followed we  believe it would still be difficult to organize a race event, especially in the month of June. We are therefore considering what we can do from July when it is believed the restrictions will be further relaxed. The race committee will meet again in two weeks.

In the meantime, the CVR Virtual Social Distance Run Series enters its 6th week this weekend. Through the first 5 weeks there has been 208 finishers in our events. This is an awesome turnout! Remember this is an 8 week virtual run series and we have 3 more weeks left. I have manually compiled all the results into a spreadsheet this week and from next week will offer some analysis of the results so far. To register for this weekend click here CVR Run Series. Results from last week’s series are listed below.

I have picked a few of the pictures with happy faces posted to the results site and show them here.

One thing remaining to announce. For those who ordered CVR Social Distance Virtual Run series hats, the vendor will be shipping the hats out from the first week of June. The Vendor informed us this week they had an issue with the embroidery and couldn’t fit the enter wording on the hat. We therefore accepted Virtual Run Series as an alternative. If anyone has an issue with this please let me know.

Thank you for your comments and please keep them coming!
