The 49th Annual ASICS Falmouth Road Race will open registration for its virtual At-Home Edition and SBLI Kids At-Home Challenge on Saturday, May 1, at 9 AM.
Currently, the iconic running event will consist of a week-long worldwide virtual celebration where participants will lace up their running shoes and go 7 miles in their own neighborhoods from Saturday, August 7, to Saturday, August 14. Plans surrounding an in-person run, tentatively slated for Sunday, August 15, are still pending.
The first 10,000 registrants for the 2021 ASICS Falmouth Road Race At-Home Edition will receive all the traditional Falmouth runner gifts, including this year’s shopper bag, the highly anticipated commemorative mug, access to the virtual gift bag and other assorted goodies.
Additionally, FREE registration for the SBLI Kids At-Home Challenge also opens on May 1. Registered participants between the ages of 3 and 12 will receive a package complete with activities and surprises including an Official SBLI Kids At-Home Challenge bib, limited-edition protective face covering, and the 2021 superhero cape and mask to celebrate their accomplishments.
During registration, runners will be presented with an option to select, “If given the chance, I would like to run in Falmouth.” Those who select the option to run in person will be placed in a random lottery. Upon guidance and capacity approval from the governor’s office and the Town of Falmouth, runners will be selected from this group at random to run the official racecourse in-person on August 15. More details will be released as they become available.
