Yes, winter finally arrived on Cape Cod and with it, the last race of the 2012-2013 Winter Grand Prix! Chased down by Polar Bear Runners, will Happy Trails prevail as the overall team champions? Katie McCully and Rory Jenkins control the individual races but will a new face or mishap on the roads relegate either to runner up? This week’s race will be hosted by Dawn Varnum’s mom in Eastham and is a 5’ish mile loop around National Seashore land [map]. IMPORTANT: Since there isn’t an abundance of parking on Duck Marsh Lane, our hosts request that we park across the street on Candlewood and overflow to the elementary school parking lot. Please avoid parking on Schoolhouse Road but if you must, please park on the school side of the road and get as far off of the road as possible.

ALSO IMPORTANT: Check the scoreboard and make sure we have all the results correct and divisions and volunteer points accounted for. If you see any problems in your results, e-mail as soon as possible! We don’t want to give your award to someone else!

Thanks and we’ll see you there!

PS – have you sent in your application for the banquet yet?

I am writing this in hopes that you can spread the word about the 3rd annual Run For Charlotte.  

This is a USATF certified 5 and 10K road race taking place in Braintree on April 7th.  This is a 

great race with  lots of food and beer, live entertainment, and award ceremony to follow.  

There will also be a large children’s area with games and prizes.

Prayers for Charlotte is now a nonprofit that raises money for research and families fighting cancer. This race 

is held in memory of my brave 5 year old niece, Charlotte Rose Kelly, who lost her battle with cancer last year.

If you could help us spread the word in anyway,  we would be forever grateful.  Thank you for your time and consideration.
