The Invitational season kicks off with a couple of coastal meets. Up in Cape Ann Country, the 10th Annual Clipper Relays will be held in Newburyport. The perfect opening meet for many teams as they will carry a baton in teams of three around the rolling hills of beautful Maudsley State Park. This early season invitational will showcase many of the North Shore teams as they compete for the Classic Handcrafted Awards. If you took a speed boat from Cape Ann to Cape Cod you could catch the Martha's Vineyard Invitational. Another perfect setting for this early season summer atmosphere event. It should be a great weekend of action and Milespitmass will cover as much as possible.
