The 48th running of the New Balance Falmouth Road Race will be celebrated worldwide as a virtual event beginning August 15 – the birthday of the late founder, Tommy Leonard – and concluding August 29, with runners covering 7 miles in their own neighborhood anytime during that period!
Run, jog, or walk the “At-Home Edition" summer event with Team Make-A-Wish, while raising funds to help grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Selected participants will pay a $50.00 registration fee, commit to a fundraising minimum of $500.00, and will receive fundraising tips, and support by Make-A-Wish and mailed a race bib, mug, swag bag and more by the Falmouth Road Race, Race Staff.
Last year, our Team Make-A-Wish runners raised just over $14,000 for wishes! And, collectively, the 2019 New Balance Falmouth Road Race, Numbers for Non-Profit program raised $5.1 million for charity. Come join our charity team!
Here are some things to note before committing to the "At-Home Edition" of the New Balance Falmouth Road Race:
