Starting May 1, 2011, the race will be taking registration online! However, there are rules for qualifying and making the lotter, so get yourself over to the webisite, www.FalmouthRoadRace.com! Per Rich Sherman, former co-Race Director for the past 38 years (he resigned last month), this is a great move for the NB Falmouth Road Race, as it will save at least 45,000 pieces of paper!

"After careful consideration and research, we feel that online registration is efficient, environmentally friendly and fair to all potential entrants," said Matt Auger, acting director of the New Balance Falmouth Road Race. "The online registration will be open for five days to give everyone a chance to enter the lottery. With the additional paperwork needed, we ask that people who live in Falmouth submit their entries as they usually would by mail for a guaranteed entry."
Runners who were not chosen for the 2010 race lottery will be able to bypass the lottery during the registration process. These individuals must register during the allotted online registration time of May 1-5, and they will be verified using the race's internal database. Falmouth residents and taxpayers are exempt from the lottery as long as their entry form, entry fee and supporting documents are received by April 30, 2011.

Falmouth Road Race
The New Balance Falmouth Road Race was established in 1972 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 weekend warriors (or 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 nonprofit community groups.
