About Us



Founder and head coach Geof Newton has been running the roads and trails of Cape Cod competitively since 1997.  Geof grew up in Chatham and was a featured runner of the cross-country team.  After a 10 year hiatus from running, he now resides in Brewster with his wife and three children and regularly logs 90-100 miles a week.  A USA Triathlon and USA Track and Field level 1 certified coach, he periodically takes time off from running and spends some time on the bike, in a boat, or just hanging with the family.  A network and computer technician at a leading software company, he also holds degrees in Astronomy and Music and is really a naturalist at heart.

Corey Keesling moved from the mid-west to Cape Cod in 1997 while serving in the United States Coast Guard.  Corey began running in 1991 and has run from 4:04 in the 1500 to 3:07:07 in the marathon.  Corey is currently attending the Muscular Therapy Institute in Watertown, MA to become a massage therapist with a focus on sports and orthopedic massage.  While generally not a high mileage runner, Corey is currently in distance mode and training for a 100 mile road race in November of 2006.


Joe Navas started running across the Cape in 2003 in order to shake some bad health habits.  He quickly rose through the local road warrior ranks to the top of the Cape Cod road racing establishment and is well known on the roads throughout New England.  A native of Eastham, Joe was a standout tennis player in High School and currently holds a USTA coaching certification. 

Until very recently, ultra-triathlete Justin Neviackas held the title of the youngest finisher of an ultra-distance triathlon.  He also held the world record for his age group in ultra-distance triathlon competition.  When he's not riding and running incomprehensible distances, he can be found training some lucky Cape Codders at the Mid-Cape Racquet Club.


Joe Weinberger retired to Cape Cod after serving for over 20 years on the New York Police squad.  An avid runner and fitness enthusiast, Joe has served as Cape Cod Athletic Club president and currently coaches runners in the Southeastern Massachusetts chapter of the Train to End Stroke program.  Joe also plays a major role in many of the local road races and co-directs the annual Andrea Holden Thanksgiving Race in November.

Soon to be Ironwoman Karen Zunti is a well-known age group favorite at road races and triathlons across Cape Cod.  Her winters are spent in the mid-West skiing but she spends the warm summer days on Cape Cod as a physical therapist.  There isn't a sport that she won't try at least several times.
