CVR News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week!

Happy Birthday to: Dianne Bake, Brian Carlson, Darragh Ellerson (turns 90!)

Hi CVR Members,

Welcome to July!

First of all please note the Birthdays for this week. Darragh Ellerson turns 90 years old on July 6. Happy Birthday Darragh!!

Since becoming President of CVR in March we have had zero races but hopefully that doesn’t mean you have had zero running experiences or fun running. We’ve had the Social Distancing Virtual Run Series for eight weeks. Had a fund raising hat campaign that raised $720 for Vermont Foodbank and we launched the Virtual Participation Race Series for the summer last week. In between those times the executive orders and guidance for COVID-19 have been relaxed and you have been able to run in small group while following distancing guidelines so it has not been so dismal considering the situation. I hope anyways. I am still requesting, and will accept your stories about the running experiences you have had during the pandemic and will publish them in future News and Notes. 

As for the new Virtual Participation Series I can report the following so far since launching the series on June 21st.
