Didn’t get into the New Balance Falmouth Road Race? Don’t worry we have your bib to this exclusive 7.1 mile race!
The New Balance Falmouth Road Race celebrates its 46th running this year and the spirit which made the first Falmouth so special is still present today. More than 11,000 runners will gather in Woods Hole for the 2019 race, including many of the world’s elite, though the essence of the event remains a fun run. Back-of-the-pack joggers share the road with the best, forming a tapestry of colors from the start on Water Street to the finish at the beach in Falmouth Heights. And Back on My Feet has your ticket to race! Contact Fundrace@backonmyfeet.org to sign up!
The race is seven miles long and begins in front of the Woods Hole Community Center, near the drawbridge on Water Street. The first three miles are narrow, hilly, winding tree-shaded roads, while the last four miles are open on the flat right next to Martha’s Vineyard Sound. A small steep hill lets you know that you are beginning the last half-mile of the race. Once you crest the hill it is “all downhill” to the finish.
