GBTC men beat Western Mass Distance Project 34 to 44 and GBTC women beat Cambridge Running Club 41 to 51 in an exciting season opener.  Men master, 50+, and 60+ also won.

The race played out on narrow, rocky, rooty, hilly terrain in perfect sunny, dry, summer-cool weather. The club now leads the Grand Prix but with many, many more perilous miles to go. Several men raced for the club for the first time, Jonathon Charlesworth, Daniel Lewis, Michael Carlone, and Andrew Chalmers. See the results to see where they finished.

Results.
