Mullins Victorious in Inaugural ‘Y-Not’ 50K on Cape Cod

What began a year ago with the goal of inspiring residents of the Cape Cod communities to get moving – be it for a marathon, half marathon, 10K or 5K – is now challenging runners to move even farther. That’s because the second annual Cape Cod Moves “Y-Not” Trail Races on Saturday, Sept. 21, in Sandwich, Mass., also featured the event’s inaugural 50K ultramarathon.

Frigid Weather Doesn’t Deter Record Turnout at 13th Cape Cod Frozen Fat Ass

The sun was shining at Sandy Neck Beach as runners arrived on Saturday morning, Jan. 12, and made their way from the cozy confines of the Snack Shop down to the starting line on the sand.

The blue sky, lack of snow, and seaside location may have hinted that it was a warm day, but that was far from the case. The Cape Cod Frozen Fat Ass 50K has had its share of diverse weather during its first 12 years, ranging from warm temperatures and sunny skies, to rain and snow. The 13th edition of the race in Barnstable, Mass., was no different. The sun was a disguise for the 20-degree temperature and strong wind gusts that froze the runners to their core.

New Champions Crowned at Cape Cod 50K

One thing was certain when runners gathered at the starting line for the Cape Cod Trail Race 50K on Sunday, April 8: the outcome would be different from any of the four prior editions of the race.

Rob Levy and Kara Spera – back-to-back winners in 2016 and 2017 – weren’t in the field this year. Neither were 2015 winners Jake Dissinger and Anne-Marie Monette nor 2014 winners Eric Ahern and Kelly Manchester. That cleared the path for new champions to be crowned.
