Hi CVR Members,

Hot weather is here to stay! Must be great for early morning runs. Let’s get into the news.

Summer Trail Runs
The second trail run of the year was held in Warren, VT, hosted by Gary Kessler. Another great turnout for this event. Fourteen members were signed up, fifteen members in the pictures! This Saturday the event is hosted by Mark Howard and will take place at Spruce Mountain. Mark and several others are planning on running an epic Groton 6 peaks (50K), but he does have a 4.2 mile course with some add on miles for normal runners. I’ll be announcing this in the Summer Trail Run news bulletin tomorrow. 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.

Next CVR Meeting
I have scheduled our next CVR Meeting for Wednesday June 2nd at 6:00 PM. The email blast went out over the weekend. Thank you to those who replied Yes or No. Based on what I have received so far we are a few short of meeting a quorum. I am hoping we will have a few more in attendance. This meeting is open to all CVR members. It’s a great chance to see who we all are and meet us!
