A Day to Remember and To Honor Chad Denning-TODAY


Please join us TODAY September 20, to honor and remember Chad Denning with a trail race and picnic. All are invited to attend one or both of the events.

At 9:00 a.m. in Lebanon, N.H., the Lost a Lot Trail Race—which was created and organized by Chad—will proceed as planned. The seven-mile course is not easy, but it is fun. As anyone who knew Chad can tell you, he loved competition, but his primary goal was always to get as many people as possible outside just having a good time. In that tradition, all ages, abilities, and paces are encouraged to participate.

At about noon, following the race and awards, there will be a picnic at the Oak Hill recreation area in Hanover, N.H., about five miles from the finish of the race. We will have directions available at the race for anyone who needs them. We will also post additional details and directions here. At Oak Hill, there will be a family-friendly fun run (about 2.5 miles) and a community picnic. Please bring a picnic lunch for yourself and a dessert to share potluck style. Don't worry if you can't bake: peanut M&Ms (or "power pellets," as Chad always called them) are perfectly acceptable. As we picnic, we will share memories of Chad and celebrate his remarkable life. All are welcome to attend the picnic (including leashed dogs) regardless of whether they participate in the race.

Directions:
Oak Hill is at Storrs Pond in Hanover. Take RTE 120 north to Hanover until it reaches RTE 10 (Lyme Rd). Take a right going north to the roundabout. First exit to the right off the roundabout on Reservoir Rd. Go past the Ray School on your left, and then make a hard left into Storrs Pond Recreational area. Oak Hill is the first parking area on the right.

A fund has been set up to collect donations to Chad's family. Donations will be accepted at both the race and the picnic, or you can mail donations to:
The Chad Denning Family Fund
Ledyard Bank
67 Main Street
West Lebanon, NH 03784

(Checks should be made payable to Becky Denning.)

If you would like to make an online contribution to the Chad Denning Memorial Fund, a site is now available. We will also be collecting donations (checks and cash) at this weekend's Lost-a-Lot race and the event at Oak Hill.

Chad Denning was truly an inspiration. We will never forget his kindness, his spirit, and his smile. We hope you will join us to celebrate his life. It was far too short, but it was so full of adventures of every kind.

CBHM Mourns Loss of Chad Denning #cbhm2014 #halfmarathons


Chad Denning, CBHM Race Committee Member died on Sept. 7, 2014.
It is with heavy hearts that we must tell you we have lost a dear member of our CBHM Race Committee Family, Chad Denning. Chad was an integral part of our race, we're not sure how we will fill his running shoes next year.
The Valley News printed a great story about him...
Well-Regarded Endurance Athlete Chad Denning Dies While Running Appalachian Trail

New London — It shouldn’t happen to Superman.

That was one somber-faced reaction to the news that spread throughout the area’s running and recreational communities on Monday: Chad Denning, a beloved and seemingly invulnerable endurance athlete from New London, collapsed and died while hiking on the Appalachian Trail on Mt. Moosilauke in Benton, N.H., on Sunday afternoon.

P.J. Lovely, the director of the Newport Recreation Department, said that when he heard the Superman reference from an area race director, it seemed apt because, to many local athletes, the 39-year-old Denning seemed like a bona fide superhero. READ MORE

We will keep you posted about how the Upper Valley plans to honor this amazing athlete and friend.
