As if you needed something more than pizza to get you to the monthly club meetings in Dennis, we’ll now be going for a run before tackling club business. Starting with the October meeting, come to the Dennis Senior Center at 5:30pm for a group 5-6 mile run on the Dennis bike paths. There are some shorter options available too if you’d only like to log a few evening miles. Remember that the nights are expanding rapidly and we have a time change coming up so bring reflective clothing and blinkie lights.


Congratulations to Katie McCully and Gene Cormier who recently participated in the Triathlon Age Group World Championships in London. Katie tackled the sprint course (750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run) and Gene took on the standard distance course (1500m swim, 40km bike, 10km run) in and around Hyde Park. Katie finished 20th of 90 (7th American) in her age group in a time of 1:19:58 and Gene finished 9th of 64 (4th American) in 2:23:29. Hurrah to our Team USA members!

UPDATE: Red Cross to recognize Boston Marathon responders at Disaster 5K on October 19th

Just days after the six-month anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing, the American Red Cross of Cape Cod & Islands will honor the responders who jumped in to help in the wake of the attack – a special moment that will take place right before the 3rd Annual Disaster 5K Run/Walk kicks off at the Hyannis Village Green.

A short ceremony will be held at 9 a.m. on Oct. 19, where the Red Cross will recognize, salute and celebrate these heroes. The Color Guard will then lead everyone to the starting line where those honored responders will officially start the race.

Runners are asked to dress up at their favorite superhero and compete to win best individual or team costume, in which the winner will take home a gift certificate to Hanlon’s Shoes.

The first 100 to register will receive a free t-shirt, and medals will be awarded to the first male and female finishers – the “Master and Mistress of Disaster”- along with a pair of running shoes from Hanlon’s Shoes. Age group prizes from Bayside Runner will be awarded to the first male and female finisher in each age category. Special prizes for funds raised by each participant: earn a Red Cross baseball cap, sport bag or fleece by raising $100, $250, $500 or more.

Registration takes place from 8-9 a.m. and the race begins at 9:15 am. Participants can register at and create a fund raising page Registration is $20 and open to the public.  All funds raised go to support local disaster response.

About the American Red Cross: The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

* News about members – Gene Cormier fell off his bicycle during Labor Day weekend, but he seems to be OK.

* Recent race results – Bill Masterson – Joe Navas finished 38th overall in the Falmouth Road Race. Marathon Relay Challenge reported status of all teams involved, which include a mens, co-ed and womens team

* Mayflower Beach – Get together to be held in Dennis on 9/15/2013 – starts anytime after 1:00 PM

* Recent article in Cape Cod Times about Katie McCully’s participation in the Swim For Life event being held in Provincetown this month. Larry Cole to send a letter to the Times to embellish on her accomplishments which were left out of the article

* Old Business – Club Express – Geof Newton put together 3 recommendations on this and possible decision to be made at October meeting. Club policy on Boston Marathon waivers – a modified version of the one by the Falmouth Track Club. Directors to implement a process on how to make selections for April 2014 Boston Marathon

* At recent Directors meeting, a subvention was discussed for Beth Brazil’s Kids Triathlon. A capacity of 60 kids participated in race. Discussed to the group present about making a donation of $200. A lot of volunteers were present at race. Expected to have a larger event next year. Beth purchased insurance for the event and obtained legal work. Club in favor to make donation to Beth which would cover insurance expenses – motion to donate $200 was approved and accepted. Discussed that there should be a better plan in place next year on how Club can contribute.

* ZOOMA – looking for a pacer team – in meantime before September meeting, they have since found one.

* Per Larry Cole, received email back in June about Healthy Kids Running Series. Club was invited to act as a sponsor during summer. Not possible for Club to respond in time due to summer hiatus. Will be put on future agenda.

* Grand Prix – Howard Tansey has locked in YPD race – race date 12/29. By October meeting, most if not all of the GP schedule should be complete. Larry Cole has spoken with Dillon at Land Ho about holding a GP venue. Still considering a venue at the Weary Travelers location.

* Chatham Harbor Run in the Cold – Discussed pros and cons about having the race – discussed tentative date of Sunday 11/10 to tie in to Veterans Day and Toys for Tots. Would be a charitable cause and provide more exposure for Club. Received recent generous donation from Larry Belliveau for Club’s participation in Chatham Harbor (CH) summer run. Not looking to make CH course as part of a Grand Prix race as distance is too long for a GP. Thought about doing a combo 5k and 10k during GP series. Additional pros, cons and factoids……EMT’s and police are a large part of race expenditure. Bayside Runner has mentioned about possibly sponsoring one of the GP races. Bayside Runner also mentioned about holding a race in the Fall on Cape. Club will need a timer for the CH run – Spitler timing has been contacted for pricing. Larry Cole has contacted Larry Belliveau about being race director, but no response. Mention about hiring a race director. Also discussed sanctioning and insurance due to non-members who may be participating. Bill Masterson brought up idea of using Falmouth Track Club’s timing through Courtney Bird. Also made mention that a new race may be too much exposure for Club – thoughts about a sponsorship to absorb cost for Club to lessen Club’s exposure. Also mentioned about postponing CH run until 2014 so as to allow more time to plan event.

* Harwich Half Marathon – Larry Cole to meet with Paul Collyer to see whether CCAC workers are needed to volunteer for races.

* Geof Newton looking for a Reach the Beach runner. Also looking for donations for his Last Gasp bike race for Sunday, September 15th.

* Next CCAC monthly meeting to be held on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at Dennis Senior Center.
