Cape Code runners are grateful to be back on track

Harwich Richard Houston will run the 26th Boston Marathon in a row and the 33rd overall. Houston crossed high school and college across the country and began running the Boston Marathon out of college.

As a retired history teacher taught by Monomoe, Houston is competing because of history. Its longevity and consistency earned Houston a place in the “Quarter-Century Circle” for 25 or more runners in the Boston Marathon.

“The club was organized by a long-time runner, and when he did, 25 were competing 25 or 25 times in a row,” said Houston. “BAAA, a unique organization, allows you to re-enter automatically as long as you keep up your 25-race race, so you don’t have to hit the qualification level anymore.”
