News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week:

Happy Birthday to: Dot Martin & Laura Rooney (new age group!)

I hope everyone had a good week and has been able to continue to stay dry.

Sodom Pond Run
The Sodom Pond Run was held last Wednesday. The race started in Adamant, swung through East Montpelier on the dirt roads around Sodom Pond and finished up back in Adamant. Anne Treadwell was the first female finisher in a time of 29:39. The first male finisher was Ethan Parrish in. 25:16. Ethan is a member of the Twinfield cross-country team. The team used the race as a training opportunity. There were thirty (30) finishers.

Fun Runs/walks are happening! (Even in the spotty weather)

These evening runs are a great way to get in a few, relaxed miles, with a bunch of people who know a boatload of stuff about running and are willing to share what they know. 

Trail Running
I’m not aware of a trail run this weekend but keep checking…
See the Group Trail Run spreadsheet for info on planned runs.

It’s a Google Doc. You can look ahead and see if there’s a run that interests you. 

If you haven’t yet joined a summer trail run, put one or more on your calendar – they are always a lot of fun. Feel free to host a trail run as well.

Millstone Trails
The Millstone Trail series has come to an end. They hosted a nice awards ceremony on Sunday afternoon with a group ride and a barbecue.
Cheryl and Darrel won “Golden Gnome Awards “for finding the most hidden gnomes and for the most participation points.

Volunteer Signup
To make this year’s events successful, we need volunteers! Race Directors are always in need of volunteers so if you are available on the day of an event and will not be running, please consider volunteering. This year, we are accepting your sign up on our website. Click here to check out the signup site. Click on “Volunteer for a CVR Race”. If any issues, please reach out to our webmaster John Hackney

Using the volunteer’s app, race directors are responsible for making any final changes to their list of volunteers within 2 or 3 days after their race. Then, using the ‘Set volunteer status’ item on their menu, they should set the volunteer status of their race to Final to prevent any more changes from being made.

Ripton Ridge Run

I’ve done this run a couple of times. It’s a great little race that’s a loop run. It alternates directions each year.   Great food afterwards.

The Club Timing Clock 
If you use the club timing clock, it’s important it be returned the next day. The clock is used for a lot of events other than club races. It’s club policy that if the clock is requested for a non-CVR event, a CVR member must be present to ensure proper handling.

I (Ricky Mclain) am a CVR member and I have a couple of pieces of running gear for sale. The first is a COROS Pace 2 GPS watch. Excellent shape, just opted for a Garmin instead as I have other Garmin devices. Used for 5 months. $120.
The second is a Polar H10 chest heart rate strap. Only used a couple of times. $50.
