Yes, as in past years you can create a team for the purpose of registration only. This way, everyone on your team is either selected – or not – as a whole.

Follow the steps to register. Designate someone to go in first to create and name the team, then they should share this team name with family and/or friends.

After the random selection process is complete, these teams cease to exist.

Falmouth residents and taxpayers were invited to register between May 1st – May 7th. With proof of residency – if you are listed in the Falmouth property tax rolls, no additional proof is needed – guaranteed entry may be offered. Falmouth residents and taxpayers will be notified in mid-May and given a time frame to complete the registration process.

To qualify as the child of a taxpayer, you must be 23 years or younger on race day and reside full-time with your parents.

Acceptable forms of proof if you or spouse with same last name are NOT listed on town tax rolls (send to falmouthproof@falmouthroadrace.com): driver’s license, first page of lease or recent P&L, tax bill. Extended family members do not qualify as residents or taxpayers.

Consistent with past races, with the exception of 2021, race policy states that all entries are non-refundable, non-deferrable and non-transferable.

In a typical year, the Town of Falmouth allows a field size of 12,800. While we were hoping to have a full field this year, the town has approved a field size of 10,000 runners for the 2022 ASICS Falmouth Road Race.

Upon completion of registration, participants may submit a finish time from a past race run on or after January 1, 2021 on a USATF-certified 10K course or the 7-mile Falmouth Road Race to be seeded at the front of the race with the first 800 participants.

Only registered participants who have run a 7:35 pace per mile or faster will be considered.

When you have completed your registration, you will send a link to seedproof@falmouthroadrace.com for consideration.

You must submit proof to seedproof@falmouthroadrace.com no later than June 10th.

Our race management team, including our medical committee leaders, is working with Falmouth public safety experts, town and state officials, FRR, Inc. board members, and other stakeholders again this year.

At this time, neither runners nor volunteers will be required to show proof of vaccination. This is subject to change based on the recommendations of the COVID-19 Advisory Committee.

Runners will never be asked to run while wearing a mask; however, COVID-mitigation restrictions will likely still be in place. If so, they will be similar to 2021. These may include, but are not limited to, a scaled-back indoor/outdoor expo; mask wearing on buses and while indoors as required by town and state mandates. Please check our website for mitigation strategies, which will be posted later this summer.

Yes! The ASICS Falmouth Road Race At-Home Edition will take place from Sunday, August 7th to Sunday, August 14th. You can run or walk 7 miles in your own neighborhood and you will receive the 50th running swag, including your number and finisher medal, directly to your mailbox. The cost for this event is $55.

You will have up to one hour and 45 min to complete the 7-mile race course. It is not a walking event. If you are unable to complete 7 miles in that time, we suggest you consider the virtual “At-Home Edition” of the race, which allows you to complete the race at your own pace, walking or running, over the course of one week.

Contact one of our Massachusetts-based charity team partners directly by emailing the designated team captain using the contact information in the table found on the “Run for a Charity” page found under Charity Program on the homepage of our website. The team captain will get you registered to fundraise and run the race so you can have a great time raising awareness for a worthy cause.

You must be at least 10 years old on or by race day in order to participate in the ASICS Falmouth Road Race, including the At-Home Edition.

As always, we need all the volunteer support we can get! We plan to open volunteer registration no later than June 1, 2022. Please find more information on our Volunteer page, which can be found under “Get Involved” on the homepage of our website.

Yes! You can send a family member or a friend to pick up your number. They will need a copy of your photo ID (a picture of it will do), their own Photo ID, and your phone number.

We do not mail in-person runner bibs and we do not offer race day number pickup.

Per the Falmouth Public Safety team, running strollers are not permitted on the course, unless you have been invited to be a part of the Wheelchair Duo program. For more information on how to apply, please visit our Wheelchair Division Page under the Events tab or email adaptiveathletes@falmouthroadrace.com.

No, all bib numbers must be picked up at the Health & Fitness Expo and are not available the day of the race.

Please do not attempt to drive to Woods Hole. Traffic is very heavy on race day and we strongly suggest all runners utilize our FREE bus system leaving from Lawrence School (113 Lakeview Ave) from 5:45 AM to 7:45 AM. Please note the last bus leaves promptly at 7:45 AM and if you arrive after 7:00 AM you may not be guaranteed a ride to the start. More information can be found on our Race Day page. More information will be provided this summer.

The Falmouth in the Fall 7-mile race is scheduled for Sunday, October 23rd, pending town approval. Registration will open this summer.
