CVR News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week!

Happy Birthday to: Elizabeth McCarthy, Michelle Risley, Carolyn Ritter, Jay Stewart, Johanna De Graffenreid

Hi CVR Members,

I hate to start these news and notes with sad news, but I am going to do just that. The race committee met last week to discuss what we can do with the remainder of the race season. Although there have been a couple of live races recently that involved staggered starts or some other means of separating the runners, we concluded the risk/benefit trade offs laid way too high on the risk side for our CVR members, their families and other participants and their families. The logistics of putting on and managing a race to comply with all the guidance is still overwhelming for our club. We hope the members can appreciate the thought and process that went into making this decision. With that, I will announce that Leaf Peepers, Sodom Pond and the Fallen Leaves Series are all canceled. Alternatively, we are creating a Virtual Fall Series that will include prizes as we are doing for the Virtual Participation Race Series. Stay tuned and I will be announcing that soon!

For the Virtual Participation Race Series we are in week 7 with only two more weeks to go to get your maximum tickets (10) for the end of series drawing. Run or walk an event today! So far we have 141 registered results in the series!
