CVRR Memorial Run & AGM 2023


Nov 19 2023


10:00 am - 12:45 pm


Florence Filberg Centre, Lower Level


CVRR Memorial Run (10:00 AM Start)

This annual run is in recognition of family and friends who have passed but live on in our memories. It is a free, low-key event for people of all pace levels from walkers to runners. Strollers are welcome, but no dogs please. Register at the Florence Filberg Centre, in the downstairs Evergreen Room, between 9:15 AM and 9:45 AM. At 9:50 AM, meet on the grassy knoll at the Riverside Fit Park on Anderton, just across the street from the Florence Filberg Centre overlooking the river, to remember our running friends who have passed. We will then proceed as a group, running or walking, to the trailhead of the Rotary River Parkway. Groups will run/walk either 3K or 5K. The CVRR welcomes all club members and the public to take part in the event. If you have any questions about the Memorial Run/Walk, please contact Roz Smith at [email protected].

Potluck Brunch (10:45 AM Start)

The potluck brunch will start at about 10:45 AM, in the Evergreen Room (downstairs at the Florence Filberg Centre), following the completion of the Memorial Run. Everyone is welcome. Please bring something to contribute to the potluck. Coffee and tea will be available. If you have any questions specific to the Potluck Brunch, please contact Joyce Slaney at [email protected]

Annual General Meeting (11:30 AM Start)

The AGM will start at 11:30 AM. There will be a few announcements, and then we’ll hear from our Guest Speaker, Aidan Anderson and his presentation titled, “The 5th Ingredient to Running Success: Loving Your Sport.”  He will talk about his journey from a four-hour marathoner to the overall winner of the 2023 RVM Marathon.

The “business part” of the AGM (president’s report, treasurer’s report, nomination and election of the new CVRR board) will all start at about 12:00 noon, immediately following Aidan’s presentation. The AGM should be wrapped up by about 12:45 PM. If you have any questions specific to the AGM, please feel free to contact me at [email protected].

Please plan to participate in and attend the Memorial Run/Walk, the Potluck Brunch, and the AGM.

Thank you. On behalf of the whole CVRR Board of Directors, we look forward to seeing you there!
