Event Description: 
Open Doorway Cape Cod P. O. Box 520, North Eastham, Massachusetts 02651 *Dates & Times & Beginning & Ending Locations are pending approval from towns & Police Chiefs - paper work has been submitted and most towns have approved as of now. We have been working with towns to get all of our permits and papers filed, meeting with town officals, and getting the relay race route approved. We will be holding Team Captain meetings. The Open Doorway's 3rd Annual Cape Cod Run For Recovery Relay Race is to help raise awareness about the Opioid Epidemic on Cape Cod & to unite the Cape Cod Communities on supporting Recovery! The race takes place over 2 days where teams of runners carry purple flags from Bourne to P-town!!! This will be an opportunity for runners to also help gain sponsors and raise funds to help fund treatment for those in need & to support a life of recovery. A purple flag will be placed at each Police Department, including the Police in this event, considering they are a HUGE force in this community that needs to be recognized as working in the "trenches" of this epidemic and uniting us all as a whole in working towards recovery. We are SO proud to have our Police on Cape Cod rally behind us on this effort! The Race will begin in Bourne on Saturday, September 23rd and end in Brewster. The Race will resume on Sunday, September 24th and continue on to P-town, where we will have a celebration event at the Finish Line! We also anticipate a Celebration Event in Mashpee on Day 1 at a designated time to be announced at a later date. Last year some runners had technical issues with the Runner Sign Up site we used, so we tried to find a more cooperative site, and hope that the one we have chosen works bette for our registrants! Please let us know if you have any issues! We can't wait to see all of last year's runners and Team Captains and Volunteers! We look forward to seeing you join the race! SAVE THE DATES!
