Just for your information, Center Street is a series of some dangerous potholes. One cannot drive down the road without swerving to avoid a pothole and then swerving again to avoid another. Before this race takes place, please check the road route of the race to prevent unnecessary injury to any runner. We enjoy seeing the runner pass our home and would like to prevent any injuries to mar the Mother's Day Dash. Thank you.

I have never had to swerve to miss any pot holes, yet I do not travel that road on a regular basis. I believe all you need to do is call. http://www.vernon-ct.gov/files/Main%20Page/2012%20POTHOLES.pdf
