    recommend a good race in Mass pls.

    I live in CO, grew up in Mass, my family lives on the Cape. I'll be visiting this summer & am interested in doing a race while I am home. Can anybody recommend a good race like a 100K/marathon or some well run "must do" NE race in June, July or August? I saw the Jay Challenge but it looks a bit too hard--I suppose I could do it but....And I'd love the Vermont 50 but that is later in the year.

    I race Sport, and not terribly fast either. Last summer I did races of 18, 25, 75 miles, & one 24 hr. THX

    I live on the northshore, so I'm not too familiar with races down there but Root 66 and EFTA both have good races. Since I'm not living down there, I have no idea how long it takes to get from point A to point B. Hope that helps, a lot of people love riding at on the Cape so have fun!

    24 Hours of Adrenaline, Dalton, is great. Usually held in June. Don't know if they're runnning it this year though.

    24hr race still not listed as happening. if he doesn't want to do JAY then 24hr race 3.5hrs from Cape won't do it either.

    check out EFTA and Root66.
