ASICS Falmouth Road Race Q&A - Team Challenge ALS 2021
The ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter is thrilled to announce their involvement with the 2021 ASICS Falmouth Road Race! Our organization has been granted 15 bibs and our application process for this year's event is now officially open!
We've answered some questions you may have about this new program below - take a look at our Q&A!
What is the date of The Falmouth Road Race?
The Falmouth Road Race is tentatively set for August 15, 2021, pending town approval. They have also requested a postponement date of November 14, 2021, if necessary.
Is The Falmouth Road Race going to be an in person race?
These are the potential race scenarios for the 2021 Falmouth Road Race:
- An in-person event (with a potentially reduced amount of runners)
- A hybrid event (virtual At-Home Edition an in-person with a reduced amount of runners)
- A virtual At-Home Edition (fully virtual)
When will the decision be made whether or not an in-person event will happen in August?
At this time, Falmouth Road Race is planned to be in-person. The Board of Directors, however, has chosen June 1, 2021 as the date a final decision will be made.
Who gets to run the Falmouth Road Race in Falmouth if the race is hybrid or in person with limited people?
Charity Teams make up 30% of the total runners in The Falmouth Road Race. To ensure each team is represented at an in person event, with a reduced amount of runners, each team will be able to choose 30% of their runners to participate in the race in Falmouth.
Is there a fundraising minimum for participants with team challenge als?
Yes. Each runner is required to raise $1,250. We encourage team members to set a higher personal goal to help achieve a 2021 Team Challenge ALS goal of $25,000. Remember that the money you raise will directly support cutting-edge research, vital care services programs and important advocacy work!
Are runners mandated to utilize The Falmouth Road Races Fundraising partner platform?
Yes. In order to participate in the Falmouth Road Race runners must utilize The Falmouth Road Races Fundraising Platform. This year's fundraising platform is Race Roster. All runners will be given ample resources with which to start up and maintain their fundraising pages through The ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter.
