The spring running season is here and with that comes a slew of road races and summer planning!
Having had endured another LONG New England winter makes me appreciative of the spring and summer seasons. And, for this runner, the summer of 2011 will be no different than the past fifteen in that I plan to be in Falmouth for the 39th running of The Falmouth Road Race.
This year’s race will be held on Sunday, August 14.
For those unfamiliar with the race, per the Falmouth Road Race site:
The *New Balance Falmouth Road Race was established in 1973 and has become one of the premier running events of the summer season. Each year the race draws an international field of Olympians, elite runners and recreational runners out to enjoy the scenic 7-mile seaside course. The non-profit Falmouth Road Race organization is dedicated to promoting health and fitness for all in its community. Proceeds from the race each year support youth athletic programs in the town of Falmouth and other nonprofit community groups.
The last couple of years we have had relatively nice weather – let’s hope for the same this year. Have a good race – just don’t pass me on the course!
*New Balance has taken over the sponsorship of the race. New Balance is replacing SBLI. Previous race sponsors have included CIGNA and Harvard Pilgrim.
