“The New Balance Falmouth Road Race celebrates its 42nd running this year and the spirit which made the first Falmouth so special is still present today. More than 12,000 runners gathered in Woods Hole for the 2014 renewal, including many of the world’s elite, though the essence of the event always 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.” – www.falmouthroadrace.com

Since 1978 the Cape Cod Marathon, a Falmouth Track Club event, draws runners from around the United States and the world. The Palmer House is located just a few steps from the start and finish lines – a wonderful location for race participants or spectators.
“The Cape Cod Marathon takes its participants on a twenty-six mile loop around the town, beginning in the historic Falmouth Village Green, past the picturesque Falmouth Inner Harbor, along the breathtaking Nantucket Sound vistas of Falmouth Heights and Menauhant, across Green Pond and through the rustic wooded areas of Davisville and past Falmouth’s legendary Cranberry bogs in Hatchville. The race then turns west towards the Buzzards Bay villages of West Falmouth and Sippiwissett and south through the internationally famous scientific community of Woods Hole.
Winding through Woods Hole, the race then returns to the beaches of the Sound with a stunning turnaround, past the lighthouse and along the beaches of Surf Drive and then finally back through the downtown streets of Falmouth to finish at the Village Green. The marathon’s route gives participants a unique view of almost every section of Falmouth and its neighborhoods and people.” – Cape Cod Marathon
