Adamant Half Marathon and Relay this Weekend!

The inaugural Adamant Half Marathon and Relay is Saturday at 10AM.  Wednesday the 8th is the last day of pre-registration.  You can registerhere right now.  After Wednesday at midnite, you will have to register day of at $25 half and $35 relay.  Still a bargain!
The relay splits out at 5.1 miles and 8 miles.  Leg 1 is the shorter one but has the big Adamant Rd. hill.  So there will be many arguments as to which leg is harder…
If you run the half, you are guaranteed a race PR and get soup and other great food at the finish.
Remember the half is part of the CVR/ORO Race series!

Volunteers Needed – Adamant

If you can help with the Adamant Half Marathon this Saturday, May 11, let Donna Smyers know.  Still short a few volunteers.  

CVR Meeting, Monday May 13

The next meeting will be at Donna Smyers and Eric Ryea’s house at 1171 Haggett Rd. in Adamant. The potluck starts at 6pm and the meeting at 6:30pm. This happens to be the week that the Monday Berlin Pond run is held in Adamant, so come early (4:30pm) so you can run in Adamant before the meeting.  This gives everyone a chance to run in Adamant if you had to miss the Adamant Half Marathon (2 days before).

Barre Town Spring Run

The races are coming up fast now and next weekend (May 18) is yet another CVR/ORO Race Series race.  The Barre Town Spring Run 5K is at 9am at the Barre Town Rec Facility adjacent to the Barre Town school.  The course is mostly on the Barre Town Rec path and is the year end closing event for the Barre Town School Kids Running Program.   But it also is a competitive race in the Race Series and this is the 11th year.  If you want to run, it is a bargain at $10 (adults); 8th grade and under are free. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Phil Krajewski.Here is a race flyer, feel free to spread it around!

VT 251- the Race Less Traveled

This is a group of folks with the goal of running organized events in all 251 Vermont towns.  They can be races or “challenge runs”.  Here is their recent newsletter.  You will notice quire a few CVR members here. Also, the group maintains a nice race calendar . I am sure they will be glad to have others join the group.  

Send a note to Gerry Carlson

Gerry Carlson had surgery recently and is recovering at Woodridge, and probably won’t go home earlier than late next week.  Don’t think he is accepting visitors, but if you can send Gerry a card, I am sure it will be much appreciated.  The address is:
Woodridge Rehabilitation and Nursing
PO Box 547
Berlin, VT  05641
