Penske Truck Leasing donates a cargo van to Falmouth Road Race, Inc.
FALMOUTH, MA (February 23, 2023) – Falmouth Road Race, Inc., organizer of the ASICS Falmouth Road Race, one of America’s premier running events, takes delivery of a 404-cu. ft. high-roofed cargo van from their long-term partner, Penske Truck Leasing. The gift was announced during the celebration of the 50th running of the race at the Health & Fitness Expo.
“Penske Truck Leasing is honored to be partnered with the Falmouth Road Race, which has become one of our nation’s iconic racing events. The Falmouth Road Race, through their many charitable endeavors, has had a long history of giving back to the communities around them. We hope this van helps them continue those efforts, and we look forward to supporting the FRR for many years to come,” says Art Vallely, President of Penske Truck Leasing.
The new van will take center stage this summer at the 51st ASICS Falmouth Road Race on August 20, 2023 and at the 43rd running of the Shipwrecked Falmouth in the Fall race in early November.
“This van is a game changer for us,” says Jennifer Edwards, Executive Director of the ASICS Falmouth Road Race. “We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with Penske – spanning three decades now. In the past, we would rent, or look to borrow, a large capacity vehicle to transport race equipment and supplies to support other events, which happen year-round. Now we can save time and eliminate that expense, helping us better assist local organizations that promote health and wellness in the Falmouth community.”
Whether transporting materials during road race weekend as part of race promotions, or for partner events, this van will be a tremendous asset to Falmouth Road Race, Inc. for years to come.
