Thank you to all of the runners, walkers and supporters who came out this past Saturday for the 40th Annual Spring Fest Fun Run! We had just over 30 participants, many of whom opted to run both the 1.5km and 5km races. Despite many days of rain preceding the race and rainy predictions for Saturday, the weather was mostly sunny and beautiful, and runners handled the muddy spots along the trail with smiles and grace.
Congratulations to Ollie Burruss of Craftsbury, who was the first runner to finish the 5km run. Course times were not recorded, but it is worth mentioning a notable performance was given by Hazel VanderPyle, 9, of East Montpelier who came in 4th and was the 1st female to cross the finish line in the 5Km run.
Many thanks to The Buffalo Mountain Cooperative, Willey’s General Store, The Whistle Emporium, Galaxy Bookstore and Sweet Stone Maple for donating prizes that were raffled off to 5km runners! Thank you as well to Healthy Lamoille Valley for supporting the race, and to our spirited volunteers, Rose Modry and Chris Ingram.
