Happy Birthday to: Shawn Bryan, Sandy Colvin, Lillian Eckland Grustarson


Hi CVR Members,

Hope everyone had a very nice Memorial Day weekend and welcome to June and summer!! This weekend will definitely be heating up and this will be a great racing month as we have two races in store for you, the Capital City Stampede and the Bear Swamp 5.7 Miler. Let’s cover the events.

Summer Trail Runs
Last Saturday the event was hosted by Mark Howard starting at Spruce Mountain. Mark, April, Chris and Ira ran the Groton 6 peaks (50K), with Michelle joining in the beginning and Darrell in the end. This week, the event will be hosted by Joe Merrill in Montpelier covering North Branch to Sparrow Farm and Hubbard Park. More details to come out tomorrow.

 If you want to join the special mailing send me a message and I will add you Manny. We are still looking for future host. If you can host an event please reach out to Mark Howard.

Capital City Stampede 10K
Next up for races is the Capital City Stampede on 6/12. Registration is growing and now stands at 54 participants. Registration is open through June 9th. This is a Senior Games sponsored 10K for 50 year old and above. Go to the CVR website to register today, Central Vermont Runners. To help volunteer for this event either sign up on the link below or email Shannon directly by clicking her name.

Bear Swamp 5.7 Miler
Bear Swamp was moved to June 26 this year and is now open for registration!  Again, go to our CVR website to register.

Fun Runs
Don’t forget the Fun Runs every Tuesday night at 5:30 PM starting from Bike Path from the Department of Labor parking lot. I want to carry on Andy’s tradition of having a group dinner after the run. Let’s start this month. I’ll chose the Tuesday…coming up.
