CCAC Posts Top Teams, Gets WAMPed in CC Invitational Cup

The CCAC Cape Cod Marathon relay teams posted top finishes in Sunday’s marathon but not quite top enough to edge the Wampanoag Road Runners who took home the inaugural Cape Cod Invitational Marathon Relay Cup.  Team Merrill finished 5th overall and 3rd in the Men’s Open Division in a time of 2:52:13 followed closely by the Mixed Open team who had blazed the way for them through much of the course.  The Mixed Open team finished in 2:58:55 for 12th place overall and 2nd in the Mixed Open Division.  Conveniently, the first place Mixed Open team MLB Cancer Center opted to participate in the Corporate divisions, opening the door for CCAC Coed to take home the 1st place division medals.  The CCAC Women wrapped up their race in 3:37:26 in 59th place out of 194 finishers which was good for 8th in the Women’s Open Division.  With a combined score of 76, WAMP’s total tally of 36 (Men – 4th, Mixed – 14th, Women – 18th) pushed the CCAC to second in the Cup competition followed by Colonial Road Runners at 150 points and Falmouth Track Club at 176 points.  With a successful trial run, we hear the Falmouth Track Club is considering expanding next year’s Invitational Cup competition to more clubs which will make the Marathon Relay one of the hottest competitive club relays on the east coast.
