Looking for a fun summer activity and a good cause? We have a few spots still available on our Fishermen's Alliance Falmouth Road Race Team as part of the Numbers for Nonprofits Program for the iconic race and we invite all levels of runners to join us!
We are thrilled with the announcement that charity runners can run the actual race course in Falmouth on August 15. There are now two options for participating in the race this year:
Option 1: Run the 7 mile seaside race in person in Falmouth on Sunday, August 15.
Option 2: Run or walk 7 miles "at home" in your neighborhood or scenic locale of choice during August 7- 14. A fun way to participate and even run with friends or family.
Meet one of our #fishrunfalmouth runners who is running the Falmouth Road Race 2021
“I grew up on the South Shore in Marshfield, MA and spent the summers out lobstering with my father. Fishing instilled a love and respect for the ocean that has stuck with me my entire life. Following in my dad footsteps, I also found a career at sea sailing in the US Merchant Marines and serving in the Navy Reserves. I wanted to run in the Falmouth Road Race for the Fishermen's Alliance because of the direct effect they have on the local community. Fishing is one of the biggest parts of the local economy and building a sustainable marine ecosystem is the key to preserving the fisheries for future generations.”

About the Falmouth Road Race:
The 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 non-profit community groups.
