First off, congratulations to all those who participated in the Hyannis Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K yesterday. This morning we’re receiving the weather that was forecast for yesterday, rain, slush, snow and wind – so everyone was treated to pretty decent conditions for the races, especially for Cape Cod in the winter.

We just received word that the Mount Washington Road Race opened their lottery today. With only one hill, this should be an easy race – just ask John Martin. The lottery remains open until 15 March. We also just caught wind of a perfect run for all the baseball aficionados out there, the Run To Home Base on 23 May. A 9K around the Fens area of Boston, it finishes at home plate in Fenway. The event is a charity fun run which is raising funds to support the Home Base Program which provides services for returning veterans.
The USATF-NE Road Grand Prix kicked off yesterday at the Jones Realty Group 10 Miler in Amherst. The New Bedford Half Marathon is the next stop of the Grand Prix (21 March) and while only one or two club members made it to Amherst (Joe Navas: 22nd overall in 55:07), we expect a heavy turnout at New Bedford. Remember that in order to score for the club, you’ll have to have an active USATF membership. If you need a singlet, shirt, shorts, hat or more gear, contact our gear coordinator.
