The First Baystate Marathon
With the Baystate marathon coming up Sunday, I thought I would again post this article about the history of the race, now in its ninth running. I initiated the race in 1990 with my now Cool Running friend Dave Camire, of the Greater Lowell Road Runners. The original goal was to stage a marathon after the new year, but before Boston. All that existed in New England at the time was Hyannis, an iffy proposition at best for those of you who have ever been to Cape Cod in March. As Boston qualifying was open until March, it seemed another opportunity in the area would be welcome.
