The 4th annual Circle Trot was held on Sunday, April 13 – an overcast, cold, wet and windy day. But the weather didn’t dampen the spirits of the 325+ people (and dogs) who ran and walked in the 2k, 5k and 10k events, a fundraiser for the Circle Program, a summer camp and year-round mentoring program that provides girls and young women with the skills, courage and confidence to handle challenges in their lives.
Waterville Valley was well represented at the Circle Trot. The White Mountain Athletic Club was an event sponsor and fielded a team in the 10k race with Rene Schwartz, Arpie Beaman and Leah Coutu. My daughter, Jenna Stearns, and her high school and college friend and field hockey teammate, Kelly Hood, also ran in the 10k. I saw Joe Clark, Jr., Debbie Moore (former marketing director at Waterville Valley ski resort), Stacy Lopes (formerly with Waterville Valley marketing department), Don Hyde (of EVP Marketing & Media), and the Knobloch’s.
