Children as well as adults are invited to walk OR run the 5KÂ (3.1 miles). Medals will be awarded to everyone 17-and-under who completes the distance.

There will be a Red Sox ticket give-away at the awards ceremony and many great prizes donated by local businesses to age-group winners.

The race is managed by former Falmouth Road Race co-directors Kathy and Rich Sherman, plus Falmouth staffer Jo-Ann Leaf, so you can be confident it will be a well-run event.
