Dear Cape Cod Athletic Club,
I am writing as a member of the all volunteer, Mass Dash Relay committee. We organize the 200 mile Mass Dash and the new 86 mile Half Dash running relays to benefit the Jimmy Fund/Dana Farber Cancer Institute. We are all volunteers so we can maximize our donations to the Jimmy Fund.
The Mass Dash is July 13-14 (13th only for the Half Dash) and is, in my totally unbiased opinion, one of the very prettiest (though one of the more challenging) overnight relay races out there. We start at the foot of Mt Greylock in Western Mass. and finish at Carson Beach, Boston Harbor. We even have pond stops along the way….it is in July, after all.
For runners who cannot quickly put together teams of twelve for the Mass Dash, or who can’t commit to the entire weekend, they may consider our Half Dash – done in a day and only six per team.
Please feel free to email me with any questions. Our website is in the link under my name below. – Make your Miles Matter!
