CVR News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week

Happy Birthday to: Ron Allen, Lucinda Copans, Mack Gardner-Morse, Gage Kilmer, Eric Ryea

Another week with stay home stay safe, but as all of you know Governor Scott this week has started the slow process to opening the economy. Social distancing is still mandatory, however. In place of our race series, last week we launched the CVR Virtual Run Series! This is an 8 week series. There was great success in week one! A total of 75 registrants in all the events! Results are listed below. A few notes about the run series.

  • Some people had difficulty to upload their results (only 63 out of 75 were able to). If you have trouble, please try more than one time or go to Q&A in Strava.
  • You are allowed to run more than one event in a weekend. You will request multiple tickets.
  • Be careful when uploading your results and select the correct length of run. Some people posted really fast 10K and Half Marathon times!
  • We added a 10 mile run event to the list for this week.

We are very familiar now with social distancing guidelines and have read about the right way for runners to run but here is another one for your reading pleasure Runners social distancing.
