Hi CVR Members,

Summer Trail Runs
The summer trail run series continues to be very successful. Last week the event was hosted by Joe Merrill in Montpelier covering North Branch to Sparrow Farm and Hubbard Park. This week the series is off due to the Capital City Stampede. It will pick up again on the 19th with a run on Irish Hill in Berlin.

 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.

CVR 2021 Race Dashboard
I finally created a dashboard for this year’s events and will add to it for each race we complete. You can go to the link and view the dashboard. It is interactive as the one last year. So far it has the results for Paul Mailman and Adamant Half Marathon. It does not have the relay yet but I hope to add it soon.

Volunteers Needed!
During the CVR meeting last week we discussed the issue of not having enough volunteers to support our events. Having volunteers is critical to the success of our events. I can frame the discussion results as, it is the expectation when you join CVR that you volunteer for at least one event. In past years volunteers were allowed to join our January Awards banquet for free. Even though we will not have races series awards in January, we will have a banquet and we will bring back the same rule. So please sign up!

Thank you to those who have already gone to this link to sign up to volunteer for a race. It is a live document so please sign up to volunteer when you can. CVR Race Volunteer List. Thanks!
