Vermont City Marathon

Good luck to all running in the marathon and relay this weekend.  When you go to the Expo to pick up your bib, be sure to stop by the CVR table.

Leaf Peepers race director Will Robens will be at the table most of the time to promote Leaf Peepers and other CVR events. 

It looks like the marathon still needs some volunteers, so if interested, here is the link. Should be a nice day to volunteer.

Barre Town Spring Run

This past Saturday was the Barre Town Spring Run 5K, the 5th in the CVR/ORO Race Series. Lots of CVR runners got race series credit; the top CVR male was Ben Kidder in 21:08 and top female was Kelly Hadiaris in 22:36. There were 42 runners 12 years old or younger out of 95 total.  Results are here. The Barre Town Kids Running Program made up most of the 42.  This was the race director debut for Phil Krajewski. Phil and the volunteers put on a great event.  Outgoing race director and founder Andrea McLaughlin was among the volunteers.  Phil even presented her with a bouquet as appreciation for the past eleven years of this race.  It is a great event as it combines two major CVR missions: youth and adult running.

Corporate Cup and State Agency Race

This past Thursday was the annual giant 5K in Montpelier.  Lots of CVR runners in the results.  Two outstanding ones: George Aitken 9th Male in 17:19 and Dylan Broderick 5th Female in 20:36.
