News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week:

Happy Birthday to: Diane Baker


Hi CVR Members,

We made it to the end of June! What a hot and humid week. Conditions were great for the Bear Swamp so let’s jump into that first.

Bear Swamp 5.7 Mile Race
It was a beautiful day for the Bear Swamp challenge on Saturday. Runners had the chance to run straight uphill for 2.3 miles before hitting a class 4 section and running all downhill from then. Race director Tim Noonan mentioned this year the class 4 road had little water and mud as usual. Overall and male winner was George Aitken in a time of 35:37 while the female winner was Kelly Hadiaris in a time of 43:38. Congratulations to all the runners!

The following is a screen shot of the age group winners from my dashboard. If you cannot read it please click on the dashboard below.

Summer Trail Runs
Summer trail runs return this week and will be hosted by Mack Gardner-Morse. The run will be on Robinson Hill trails in Calais. Should be a fun one. Stay tuned for the email blast tomorrow with all the details.

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