Unofficial Fun Runs

Unofficial fun runs will continue next Tuesday at the usual Fun Run start (on the bike path behind the Dept. of Labor) at 5:30pm.  Hopefully this week it won’t be rain and 40 degrees.

Olympic Trials and VT

Genny Tenny race director Heidi Caldwell ran the Olympic Trials Marathon last week and here is a brief report from the Craftsbury site.  I think she was the first VT woman.

Point to Point Race

The Point to Point Race (benefiting the Vermont Food Bank) has relocated to Montpelier. The race is August 1 and includes a cycling century and half marathon trail run.  The cycling event course looks a lot like the old Onion River Century Ride. The trail run is entirely new and includes Hubbard Park, North Branch and East Montpelier.  Here is a map.
