Fun Runs Officially Over

Last night was the final Fun Run of the year.  Too dark to continue, now that it is dark at 6:15.  Thanks to Darragh Ellerson for her dedication in timing the runs and keeping us in line.  We’ll see you again in May!  

Next CVR Meeting

The next meeting is Monday, November 4, at Denise Ricker‘s house in Montpelier.  Potluck at 6pm and meeting at 6:30pm.  Please be there for discussion of the slate of 2020 races and the race series.

Pre-Meeting Run: Meet at 4:30pm at Hunger Mountain Co-op for a tour of the new section of the Montpelier bike path. After the run, we will go to Denise’s house for the meeting.  No need to RSVP for the run, just be ready to run by 4:30.


Please get your submissions to Maryke Gillis no later than this Friday.

CVR/ORO Race Series Standings

The almost final standings after Leaf Peepers are here.  If you don’t see a “Y” by your name for volunteering, then you will be scrubbed from the final results.  You have three chances to volunteer at the Fallen Leaves races.  After that the standings will be final.  Some of you have won your division but not volunteered yet.  Don’t blow a 6 race series by not volunteering! 

Leaf Peepers Photos and Videos

On the CVR Facebook page are some photos from the race.  If you haven’t seen them already, Granite State took videos of everyone’s finish, which you can access here.  Click on Individual Results, enter your name and when your results come up, click on the Finish Video tab.

The first Fallen Leaves 5K is coming soon-Saturday, November 2.  The race begins on the Montpelier High School track at 9am.  Just $5!
