If you have to be virtual, you might as well have fun with it all summer long!
As with many other races last year, 2020 was our very first fully virtual event. We had a blast planning ways to keep you engaged all summer long. We launched our “Surprise & Delight” campaign, surprising participants and supporters with one of $35,000 worth of gift cards purchased from local shops and restaurants. We had fun creating Falmouth Road Race At-Home Edition playlists using your favorite songs. We played FRR BINGO, we had SuperFan quizzes, we supported our inspiring charity runners who are a part of our Numbers for Nonprofits charity team program, now twenty years strong.
Did we mention the Virtual Gift Bag – open for three months – with monthly updated offers, contests and information?
The best part of the At-Home Edition of the ASICS Falmouth Road Race is YOU get to choose the course. Be as creative as you’d like to be. Perhaps your course will be a 3.5-mile out-and-back, or the one-mile loop around your neighborhood completed over several days, or it’s a 7-mile point-to-point with a loved one waiting at the “finish line” to celebrate you and return you safely to home. Whichever course you choose will be the right one.
Please note: If you would like to qualify to win an overall or age group award, you must complete your 7-mile race at one time (i.e., completing your 7 mile race over a period of days will not qualify you for an age group award.) You will receive instructions on how to track your race and submit your finish time later this summer.
You will complete your virtual 7 miles for the At-Home Edition between August 7th and August 14th
Per our Falmouth Public Safety team: please do not make plans to complete your At-Home 7.0 mile run on the race route on Sunday, August 15th. You will be removed from the results and be banned from the 50th running of the race in 2022.
We simply ask that you run, or walk, seven miles at home, in your neighborhood, safely.
