The Boston House Runs Falmouth!
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2020 New Balance Falmouth Road Race, originally set for August 16, will be going virtual to become the New Balance Falmouth Road Race “At-Home Edition.” The 48th running of the iconic race will be celebrated worldwide as a virtual event beginning August 15 and concluding on August 29, with runners covering 7 miles in their own neighborhoods any time during that period. With the Falmouth Board of Selectmen implementing a “no large event” policy through the end of August, race organizers have designed an experience for everyone to have fun while staying fit and focused on a goal this summer.
The Boston House is now registering runners to join our New Balance Falmouth Road Race "At-Home Edition" team. Since 1979, we’ve provided a home-away-from-home for children with cancer and their families. Those families need your support now more than ever - please consider joining our team!
In consideration of the unique circumstances, we are lowering our minimum fundraising commitment for this year to $500. We will be actively recruiting to fill all of our allocated bibs for this year, and are excited to have some new recruits, particularly people who may not have been able to make it down to the Cape, or people who weren’t comfortable running seven miles all at once – with the expanded timeframe, people can run or walk at their own pace, over the course of two weeks, to complete the race distance. The Boston House will provide team jerseys, host virtual rallies, and all registered runners will receive the official Falmouth Road Race swag package along with your bib. There will be incentives and prizes, both from FRR and The Boston House, to encourage runners to achieve their fundraising goals.
Together we’ll make this a great event, for a great cause, and we’ll all look forward to running again together on the Cape in 2021.
