The Red Clover Rovers running club announces the 2021Fun Run season. While we will not gather as a group for this biweekly event, participants are encouraged to run the course on their own, practicing social distancing on any day, at any time during the Fun Run week.
As in past years, the course is an out-and-back 1-, 2- or 3-mile route 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.
Every two weeks, beginning Monday, April 26, runners may complete the course on any day or time during that week. 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), or you can email your results 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. 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.
Traditionally, home-made cookies await all finishers and volunteers. Please feel free to post a picture of yourself on the RCR Facebook page enjoying a finish-line treat.
It is our hope that the last Fun Run, the week of Aug. 30, will be held in person (fingers crossed!). The Fun Run schedule includes the weeks of: April 26, May 10, May 24, June 7, June 21, July 5, July 20, Aug. 2, Aug. 16 and Aug. 30.
