The Falmouth Road Race

8/9/09

Many calories were burned in Woods Hole/Falmouth this morning. Around 10,000 people (so the rumors say) ran today in the 37th annual Falmouth Road Race. Since the race path runs right near our Oyster Pond Home, a number of Summer Student Fellows and Joint Program Students traveled down to Surf Drive to watch the runners.

The man in first place (below), who I’m sure ended up winning, had a good 30-second lead on the second pack.

There were very serious runners…

Some not so serious runners…

Some really young runners…

And then there were these guys….

The Falmouth Road Race is a huge event and draws people to the area from all over the world--last year the winner was a gentleman from Ethiopia and the ladies winner was from Kenya. Last summer I was out of town for the madness and I’m happy that I got to see it this year!
