Overall Standings - 2023

Clamshell Series Description

The Clamshell Series was introduced new in 2016.  All who participate in 5 or more Clamshell events receive an award which is typically distributed at our annual holiday party.  This is intended to encourage WTAC members to put on their WTAC singlet or shirt or colors, and come run and have fun at local RI and CT races with their fellow teammates!
