2009 USATF-NE Grand Prix Series Selected


November 10, 2008, Waltham MA

One new event, several repeat races, and a pair of returnees will highlight
the 2009 USATF-New England Grand Prix series. The seven Road Race
Championships
composing the coming year's series were selected Monday
evening at Brandeis University.

Thirteen races were whittled down to the selected seven through a number of
close votes. The Lone Gull 10K in Gloucester MA will be a first time
championship, and the Bedford Rotary 12K and DH Jones 10 Mile both return
after a few years out of the circuit. The events covers three of the
association's 4 states (no bids from Vermont races) and for the most part,
do not conflict with other USATF-NE series or championship events.

The 2009 schedule:

Feb 22 - DH Jones 10 Mile, Amherst MA
Mar 15 - New Bedford Half-Marathon, New Bedford MA
May 16 - Bedford Rotary 12K, Bedford NH
June 7 - Rhody 5K, Lincoln RI
Sept 12 - Ollie 5 Mile, South Boston MA
Sept 20 - Lone Gull 10K, Gloucester MA
Oct 18 - Bay State Marathon, Lowell MA
