Winter Solstice – December 21

Don’t forget that winter officially begins Saturday.  But the good news is the days start getting a little longer starting Sunday.  Something to look forward to!

Winter long runs

Speaking of winter…The second Winter Long Run was a little challenging with rain and temps in the 30s. Still, we had 8 runners at Sarah Katz’s house in Middlesex. This weekend’s run is Saturday, 9:30am in Adamant at Chris Andresen and Dot Helling’s house,  Contact this week’s host, Chris Andresen if you plan to come or if you have questions.

New Year’s Eve 5K

Manny Sainz is low on volunteers, so if you can help on the 31st, please let him know.

Save the Date-Annual Awards Dinner and Volunteer Recognition

The annual dinner will be Thursday, January 23 at the Steak House in Berlin.  More details will follow.  All 2019 volunteers can eat for free!  We will be awarding the winners of the 2019 CVR/ORO Race Series at the dinner.
