October 30, 8:30 AM Start, Main Street, Falmouth, MA
The one-loop course begins and ends at the Village Green in Falmouth center. There are five relay legs, the distances are 3.05, 6.15, 5.7, 6.0, 5.3 miles. The first part is easy, the latter is a test. Although the course is not closed to traffic, it is run on secondary roads and monitored by the police and numerous volunteers. The Marathon and Marathon Relay are run simultaneously on the same course.
Entry Fee is $195.00 per team through October 30 OR until the 210 team limit is reached.
Once the captain has registered and created a name for the team, it is very important to understand when team mates go to register, the entry fee of $195 will come up on the side once again. However, as soon as the team name that the captain created is chosen, the $195 is taken off because the captain already paid and set up the team.
Team Membership (Open Race): Minimum – two, maximum – five. Changes may be made online through the registration site. Runners may compete in an age division younger than their age group but not visa versa. Example: a Master may be on an Open team, but an Open Division runner may not be on a Master team. A Mixed Team must have at least one member of the opposite sex.
Age Groups and Divisions: Open: 14 – 39; Master: 40 – 49; Senior: 50 – 59; Veteran 60+. Within each age group, there are 3 divisions – Men, Women, and Mixed.
The top three teams overall in Men’s, Women’s and Mixed categories will be awarded medallions. The top two teams in the masters (40-49),seniors (50-59), and veterans (60+) in each category will be awarded special medallions as well.
Basic Rules: A team member must run at least one full leg, and any one runner may run up to four legs in any order chosen. Relay runners will be identified by their assigned relay bibs worn on the front and back. Exchanges will take place only at one of the designated exchange points. Teams making exchanges elsewhere may be subject to disqualification. Only one team member may cross the finish line!
Traffic Control: To reduce traffic on the course, each team will be allowed one support vehicle, for which a pass will be issued, to access the exchange areas. It is vital for the safety of the runners that spectators’ cars stay off the course. Maps will be available at race headquarters to show the best viewing points and how to get to them without going on the race course. The course is not closed to traffic, so everyone’s co-operation is critical.
I hereby release the Falmouth Track Club, which organizes the events, all race officials and volunteers, the Town of Falmouth, all sponsors, USA Track & Field and all other person(s), organizations, or vendors connected with the race from any claim of damage or injury from my participation in or traveling to and from the events of the 39th Annual Cape Cod Marathon Running Weekend to include the Relay, Half Marathon, Full Marathon, Hal Shell Challenge and the Clam Chowdah Challenge on Saturday-Sunday, October 29-30, 2016. If I choose to run the full and/or the half marathon, I attest that I will be properly trained to complete the full marathon within the six-hour time limit and/or the half marathon in the three hour time limit. I also give my permission to use my likeness and publish my name in the news media. I understand that for safety reasons the use of personal electronic devices such as portable music players during the race is a safety risk. If I choose to use portable electronic devices, I accept full liability and responsibility for any injuries to me or other participants in the event and for property damage caused by my use of these devices. I also acknowledge and agree that the entry fee is non-refundable, even if the race is cancelled due to reasons beyond the control of the Organizers, such as, but not limited to, weather, public safety or any other situations that prevent the event from occurring safely.
