CVR News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this Week!

Happy Birthday to: Nathan Suter, John Kaeding, Sandra Ferno, Tim Heney (new AG!), Colin Clifford, and Roger Cranse

Late Race Announcement

This weekend is the 9th Slip Sliding Away 5K sponsored by Northern Vermont Ridge Runners.  It is at 9am at the House of Troy in Hyde Park.

Also a race cancellation: I had been advertising Race Vermont’s Cupid 5K in Shelburne for this weekend.  But Rayne decided to cancel it this year, so no Cupid.  If you want a 5K, go to Hyde Park instead.

Mutt Strutt Date Change

When we set the original race calendar, we did not realize we had slated the Mutt Strutt race on Easter Sunday. So we will move it a week to April 28, which is the following Sunday. It will be the day after the Paul Mailman 10 Mile, so Mutt Strutt is a good chance to do a recovery run with your dog.

Winter Long Run

This week’s Winter Long Run will leave from Red Hen in Middlesex at 9:30am.  For more information or to tell me you will be there, contact this week’s host, yours truly, Andy Shuford.

Annual Meeting

The CVR Annual Meeting will be Sunday, March 17.  The meeting will be at the Montpelier Senior Activity Center at 58 Barre St.  We will meet at 4:30pm for the meeting portion and then finish up between 6 and 6:30pm, at which time we will have pizza brought in.  Also, feel free to bring any dishes you wish to share. 


The March newsletter deadline is approaching since it comes out before the annual meeting.  Maryke Gillis would like your contributions by March 9.  Contributions to the past few newsletters have been great, let’s keep it up!

Mt. Washington Road Race

Registration is now open for the Mt. Washington Road Race (only one hill).  It continues through February 25 and the entries are awarded February 28.


Below is a rather blurry mention in the Times-Argus of Dick and Sandy Ferno’s 3rd end to end walk of the Long Trail at Berlin Mall.  Dick says it takes 55 days to complete the 272 mile trail by doing 10 laps per day.  This is a great fundraiser for the Green Mountain Club.
