Falmouth, MA (August 3, 2021) – Registration for Falmouth in the Fall opens on Tuesday, August 3, 2021.
Falmouth in the Fall, a classic local road race held each autumn since 1979, is now under the direction of Falmouth Road Race, Inc.
The seven-mile race, which is run on the same seaside course as the ASICS Falmouth Road Race, was founded by Jack Oser, along with Jim and Betty Gehris, long-time Falmouth Road Race volunteers. After directing the race for about eight years, the Gehrises turned over the duties to Don Facey, who served as race director until 2018. In 2019, the race was put on by Cape Cod MOVES under the leadership of Carl Gustafson, and had 299 finishers.
“We’re excited and honored that Cape Cod MOVES has entrusted us to become the next guardian of this town treasure,” said Scott Ghelfi, president of the Falmouth Road Race., Inc. board of directors. “I’ve run it myself, and always looked forward to it. Preserving its charm will be our privilege.”
“Cape Cod MOVES was proud to be a steward of the Falmouth in the Fall race,” said Carl Gustafson, a MOVES founder. “It is one of the backbone events of Falmouth running, and has always piggybacked so well with its ‘big sister’ race. We’re comfortable knowing that Falmouth Road Race, Inc. will continue the spirit of Falmouth in the Fall – known for its charitable giving, family feel and off-season delight.”
Falmouth in the Fall will continue to honor Don Facey with an award in his name, as a tribute to his years of service.
Registration will be $45 per runner and more information can be found at: www.falmouthinthefall.com.
