NETT-Etonic Teams Dominate Hyannis Marathon Relay

The NETT-Etonic mens team took home top honors at the Hyannis Marathon Relay while the NETT-Etonic women's teams nabbed 2nd and 6th in the women's race. The men's team of PaulM, Chris Smith, DaveH and DaveM finished up the race in 2:33, a full 20 minutes in front of the next relay team. The women's teams had a bit more competition with a very strong women's filed (top women's relay team was third overall and only a minute out of 2nd!). But the team of Tina, Claire, Deb and Mary threw down a 3:06 good for ninth place overall (out of 70 teams) and 2nd women's team. The other team of Jennifer, Emily, KarynM and ChrissyD averaged under 8 min pace for a very strong 3:28, 6th in the women's division and 22nd overall.

And our non-relayer, Mr. Young, won the Master's title in the 10K, a pretty much annual even for him now. Our pals at Etonic provided us all with new shoes, new shirts and a home base at the race Expo, which was extremely helpful in organizing the relay teams (Thanks Pete!). Special thanks to team photographer Frank KJ out there taking all these great pics and to the folks who made an extra effor to run the race--Claire coming all the way from DC, Chrissy for jumping into the fray, PMiller racing down with minutes to spare at the start, and all the other folks. It's not easy to get three teams organized and down to a race 90 minutes away
