The New Balance Falmouth Road Race celebrates its 40th running this year and the spirit which made the first Falmouth so special is still present today. More than 10,000 runners will gather in Woods Hole for the 2012 renewal, including many of the world's elite, though the essence of the event remains a fun run. Back-of-the-pack joggers share the road with the best, forming a tapestry of colors from the start on Water Street to the finish at the beach in Falmouth Heights. Sponsored for the first time by New Balance, the race is one of the showcase events in distance running and woven into the fabric of summer on Cape Cod. The little race that could belongs to Falmouth. It was first held on a Wednesday afternoon because that was founder Tommy Leonard's birthday. It is seven miles because that was the distance from the Captain Kidd in Woods Hole to Tommy's workplace: the Brothers Four in Falmouth Heights.

Course Description

The race begins in front of the Woods Hole Community Center, near the drawbridge on Water Street. The first three miles are narrow, hilly, winding tree-shaded roads, while the last four miles are open on the flat right next to Martha's Vineyard Sound. A small steep hill lets you know that you are beginning the last half-mile of the race. Once you crest the hill it is "all downhill" to the finish.
