Erik D'Entremont and Mark Nardone ran the Cranberry Century held on October 14, 2023. This aricle is a report to the CRW Board.
We also include a comment by CRW President Edward Cheng:" Thank you everyone, and congratulations. This is an important event for CRW and you volunteers are at the heart of it. Special thanks to Erik (and Mark) for taking the lead in organizing it."

We had 369 Registrations with 270 riders who checked in.
- We generated $11,245 in fee revenue.
Our expenses are still be submitted but I expect to be over budget as we had additional permit, DCR and medal expenses for the year.
The Water stops all went great without issue. Our sponsored stops at Mattapoisett and Tamarack did great! All of our volunteers were Awesome!
