It’s almost here – the 2nd Annual Cape Cod Triathlon Team Training Camp opens Friday and with almost 30 athletes already registered, this will be one serious training weekend that you won’t want to miss. And even if you’re a single-sport fanatic, there’ll be plenty to learn from our coaches from Boston Performance Coaching, Endurance Swimming and Athlete’s Companion. Plus, there’ll be lots of time to unwind as we setup camp in the back reaches of Nickerson State Park. Register now for a day or the whole weekend and come get lost in the woods! [More Information]


The Falmouth Track Club has opened registration for their 5th Annual Summer Youth Running Program. For kids from 1st grade through high school, the program will introduce running essentials, include games for the young ones, and focus on form and technical training for the more experienced runners. The one-week sessions begin 13 July and continue through 12 August at the Falmouth High School Track. Contact Anne Preisig for more information. Additional volunteers are also welcome.

It is with profound sadness we have learned of the death of Marilyn Baker. For those of you who knew her, you were extremely lucky. Marilyn was an incredible athlete, a fierce competitor, an amazing friend and phenomenal volunteer. For years, Marilyn would show up to volunteer for the Women Running Wild 5K or the Osterville Library road race, an hour before I would. I never had to ask her to do something, Marilyn took over and knew how to run the show. Her love of the sport, coupled with her passion for helping others, made Marilyn a gift to us all.

My deepest sympathies go out to her husband David and her entire family. In a little over a week, we will have the 14th Annual Women Running Wild 5K, I suggest we show Marilyn how much we loved her and how much we appreciated all her hard work for the running community by making this the biggest WRW yet. All proceeds of this event go to the Marilyn Baker Scholarship Fund – let’s give her something to be proud of.

~ Sean Doherty, Race Director: Women Running Wild


Marilyn and Dave at Harry's, January 2010 (Joe Navas) With deepest regrets, we forward the news that Marilyn Baker passed away on Monday evening after a several year battle with cancer. Calling hours will be on Friday from 4-7PM at Doane Beal & Ames on W. Main Street in Hyannis. After calling hours, all are invited to the Veterans Hall on West Bay Road in Osterville for a small gathering. Sympathies and prayers may be sent to 394 Pitchers Way, Hyannis, MA 02601. The Women Running Wild road race which will be held on the evening of the 19th of June in Osterville will be directing all of its proceeds to the Marilyn Baker Scholarship Fund. Our sympathies and thoughts are with family and friends.


Happy National Running Day – have you logged your time today?
