Receive a Race Bib, Bag, Mug and More for Doing 7 Miles Any Way You Choose from Aug. 15-29
Falmouth, MA (May 11, 2020) – Perhaps the best thing about the 2020 New Balance Falmouth Road Race At-Home Edition is that it can be done your way.
Need some motivation? There’s nothing like putting a race on your calendar. Remember that feeling?
You’re a beginner? It’s OK to run the 7-mile race one mile at a time, even over a period of several days. Try doing THAT in a race.
Want some virtual race partners? Challenge your friends, no matter where they live, to enter and run it “with” you, then toast each other on a post-race video chat.
Want to run with your kids? A special family rate will be offered to include your kids. And don’t worry, we’re planning something very exciting for kids under 10 to join the fun, too!
Walking’s more your thing? Great – enjoy the scenery! There’s no time limit, virtual or otherwise. Walk, jog, skip, just cover 7 miles and upload your finishing time when complete.read more
