News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week:

Happy Birthday to: Ann Bushey, Michael Chernick, Rosalie Managan, Andrew Tripp, Marian Wolz, Heidi Hales (new age group!)

Hi CVR Members,

We were supposed to have nice weather last week but the weatherman may have misled us, just a little bit. This week however, Spring temperatures are definitely back! Vaccines are rolling out at a faster pace than expected in Vermont and some guidelines have been relaxed. All good news. A few items to announce today and I want to start with the Paul Mailman 10 Miler and 5K.

CVR Paul Mailman 10 Miler and 5K
Have you started to train for a real live race yet? If not, you better start now. Race director Andy Shuford has informed me road permits were approved for the Paul Mailman scheduled for April 24th. This is exciting news, as barring any major change to the current Covid guidelines, this race will be our first live race in over a year! Online registration will open soon. There are still guidelines in place so please make sure you read through the details before registering. Andy is asking at this time for volunteers. If you are not running and would like to support CVR and this event please reach out to Andy.

Saturday Winter Long Run
Last week’s winter long run was hosted by Sal Acosta at the Red Hen Bakery in Middlesex. There were 2 runners who ran the course at 7 am and 11 were signed up to run the course at 9:30 am. This week is a mystery week and I don’t know where the run will take place. Donna will certainly announce it tomorrow. If you want to join the winter long runs please send a message to Donna to be added to the mailing list…Donna
