Fundraising

The Falmouth Road Race is one of our largest annual fundraising events and we are asking for your support to help us reach our goal of raising $300,000! This year’s registration fee is $200 (the amount it costs us to purchase your number from the Falmouth Road Race) and we ask our runners to raise a suggested minimum of $1,500 to support CCALS.

All CCALS Falmouth Road Race runners are supporting our ALS Patient, Family and Caregiver Program. The past few years have been particularly difficult, as we have allocated resources to adapt to the new reality of COVID-19. We continue to work tirelessly to ensure that all ALS individuals, families, and caregivers had access to the resources and support they needed during this challenging time. 

Registration

After completing the registration process, participants must pick up their official race numbers from the Falmouth Road Race Health and Fitness Expo. Don’t forget to stop by the CCALS booth to grab your CCALS running singlet and swag! Virtual runners will have their T-shirts mailed to them at the home address they provide.

The dates of this year’s Expo and pick-up times are as follows:

Thursday, August 18th from 4-7 pm
Friday, August 19th from 12-7 pm
Saturday, August 20th from 10-2 pm

Run with your friends or family on your own team!

Runners, joggers, and walkers can sign up to run individually or gather friends and family to create their own team! Each individual will have their own fundraising page to share with their supporters. To run with us, return to the home page and click “register.” After you’ve registered, lookout for an email with next steps to prepare you for race day.

COVID-19 safety and virtual opportunities 

Because this is an outdoor event, the risk of contracting COVID-19 is limited and we feel confident in welcoming the Falmouth Road Race back in person. However, we respect individuals’ decisions regarding their personal safety and are offering a virtual option for those who would prefer it. 

What does a virtual race look like?

In the virtual option of the Falmouth Road Race, runners will have the flexibility to complete their 7 miles on their own time and on their own course during the week of August 7th – 14th. This is a great opportunity for individuals to walk the race this year as well! Participants will still receive Falmouth Road Race bibs and upload their results to the Falmouth Road Race’s Race Roster website to get their ranking.
