August Racing Update
By: Geoff Dunbar
Stay cool out there, UVRC runners!
Upper Valley Running Series
We finished the 3rd race in the series, the Red, White and Blue 6.2 on July 4th. It was a great time, congratulations to all finishers! And also to the Couch to 5K finishers, who mostly did the 5K. But that still counts towards "finisher" status for the series. The UVRS site has links to the results for RWB, and current standings for the series: https://bit.ly/2022uvrs
The next race in the UVRS is the Under the Tree race, August 20 in Hartland VT. Again, the 10K is the scoring race, but the 5K is finisher eligible.
See the website (above) for links to series races, as well as overall information on the series.
New Hampshire Grand Prix
No July race in the NHGP, so UVRC is still in first! However, it's not time to get complacent. We need to get out and put up results in the track 5K. Run anytime you like, submit your time here: https://www.runreg.com/nh-grand-prix-5000m
Then, the next race in the NHGP is the Sandown 5 Miler, August 6 in Sandown NH. It's a bit of a trek for us, and you can bet our competitor clubs are looking to get back at us. Let's get as many folks down as we can sign up for the vanpool here: https://secure.rec1.com/NH/city-of-lebanon/catalog?filter=c2VhcmNoPTIxNTEyNDI=
