The 50th running of the race is set for August 21. The At-Home Edition date TBD

The field size has yet to be determined. Pending Town of Falmouth approval we are hoping for as many as possible to celebrate the 50th running!

Registration for Falmouth residents will open on May 1st until May 7th. General public registration will open on May 8th until May 17th. Random selections will be notifyed on May 22nd.

Falmouth residents and taxpayers are invited to register between May 1st – May 7th. With proof of residency or listing in the Falmouth property tax rolls, guaranteed entry is offered. Residents and taxpayers are notified in late May and given a time frame to complete the registration process. General registration (for everyone else) begins May 8th and ends on May 17th.

During registration, participants may submit a finish time from a past race run on or after January 1, 2019 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.

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

As part of our first 5,000 registrants in 2020, you were awarded a guaranteed entry to this year’s event. Given the uncertainty of the 2021 race, the ASICS Falmouth Road Race offered you the opportunity to defer your guaranteed entry to the 50th running celebration in 2022. If you opted to keep your guaranteed entry in 2021 prior to the March 12th deadline, you will be guaranteed to run the Falmouth course on August 15th.

Don’t worry, if you did not receive or respond to the email by March 12th, your guaranteed entry was automatically deferred to 2022!

Yes! Even if you deferred your guaranteed entry for the historic 50th running, you can still register for this year’s event. At this time, registration remains open for any participant running for one of our amazing charity teams.

If you are offered an opportunity to run the race in person, 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 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.

Volunteer registration will open May 2022. Please find more information on our Volunteer page, which can be found under “Get Involved” on the homepage of our website.

Contact one of our Massachusetts-based charity team partners by emailing the designated team captain using the contact information in the table found on 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.
