The Red Clover Rovers running club announces the 2022 Fun Run season. Fun runs will be held once every two weeks, Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. from May 4 through Sept. 7.
As in past years, the courses are out-and-back, with 1-, 2- or 3-mile routes on Upper Dummerston Road or a 2.4-mile trail run on the Brattleboro Retreat Trails. All runs begin and end near the entrance of the Brattleboro Country Club. Start/finish line and turnaround points have been marked.
For those who can't attend the group fun run, there's also a virtual option. Runners may complete one of the fun run courses on any day or time during fun run week.
If you want to get an official time, you'll first need to register here. Then you'll need to record your own time and submit your results to RunSignUp either by text message or using a web form (you'll receive instructions after you register). Please note that you'll use the Submit Virtual Result button even if you do the group run. If you have trouble using the online form, you can email your result to RCR volunteer Bob Aube (email@example.com) no later than 5 p.m. on the Sunday at the end of the Fun Run week. And if you haven't preregistered, please send your name, age, town of residence, race distance, and your time.
Results will be posted on the Red Clover Rovers Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/106696569371456/) and websites (https://www.redcloverrovers.org/race-results and https://www.redcloverrovers.org/race-results), RunSignUp.com, and sent to the Brattleboro Reformer.
Everyone also is allowed to complete more than one distance, but you must register for each distance if you want an official result.
The Fun Run schedule is as follows: May 4, May 18, June 1, June 15, June 29, July 13, July 27, Aug. 10, Aug. 24 and Sept. 7.
