News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week:

Happy Birthday to: Kimberly Caldwell, James Lehneman

Hi CVR Members,

We are at the midpoint of July already and the Barre Heritage 5K is coming up fast. With the Milestone Trail series going on this summer in which many of you are participating, you should be well prepared for this event! This will be a very short news and notes this week, I’ve been a little under the weather with a summer cold.

Summer Trail Runs
Last Saturday’s Summer trail run was hosted by Mark Howard at Nebraska Notch in Stowe. Apparently we don’t have a picture of the entire group that showed up but there was a good turnout for the run. This coming Saturday the event will switch to North Branch and be hosted by Onion River Outdoors. Stay tuned for my news bulletin about that tomorrow.

If you want to join the mailing list send me a message and I will add you Manny. We have only a few more weeks left where host are required. If you can host an event please reach out to Mark Howard.

Fun Fun
I missed the fun run this week and don’t have a picture. I have been talking about returning to a once a month dinner with the group that shows up. Typically that is at the end of the month. So on the 27th, lets plan on having a group dinner.

Next Up Races
The Barre Heritage Trail 5K is on July 31. I will mention once more that this year again, there will be Custom Granite awards! Berlin Pond is on August 12 and is open for registration. Also, Groton Forest is on September 11 and open for registration with runs this year of 26.5, 15 and 6.2 miles and Leaf Peepers is open for October 3rd.

Leaf Peepers Training
I was approached by a club member who offered to create a 6 week Leaf Peepers Training course. It would start the first week of August. There would a charge of $50 for the training but that would be applied to your registration fee. The training would be for the half marathon but you could also sign up for the 5K. Right now we would like to find out if there is enough interest for this training and if so i will announce more details in the next couple of weeks. If you are interested in this training please signup to this spreadsheet.
