Lake Memphremagog Marathon Rescheduled
23 January, Newport, Vermont- Phil White regrets that the Memphremagog Marathon, originally planned for January 30 & 31, will now take place on Saturday and Sunday, February 13 and 14. Earlier this month Phil was plowing the oval when his pickup truck went through the ice. His only decent snow removal equipment is now sitting in 20 feet of water. Luckily Phil escaped his sinking truck, without even getting wet. He even had to time to go back into the vehicle to grab his skates. It will take some time to clear the ice of recent snows and prepare a track, hence the reason for rescheduling.
