Falmouth in the Fall 2019
40 years running… 400 registrants and a perfect fall day for the Falmouth in the Fall Road Race. Don Facey, the Directorof FIF for 38 years, passed the torch to Carl Gustafson and Cape Cod MOVES to see that this race continues for another 40 years. The “No Frills” race on the Cape takes place on the same beautiful course the Famous Falmouth Road Race enjoys.
The Reverend Deborah Warner of the Church of the Messiah started the day by giving a runner’s blessing. She gave the runner’s a sense of place and appreciation for all of the good things that we enjoy.
Race winners won a gift card from Hanlon’s Shoes for a free pair of running sneakers so they can stay fast! They also won the Don Facey Award!
2019 winners of the Cape Cod MOVES Falmouth in the Fall Race are:
Leah Cappelluci in 48:57 and Brian MacIlvain in 40:26.
Both finishes were within 7 seconds of the 2nd place runner! Wow!
Dave and Sylvia Smoller of “One More Slice” placed, sang and brought joy to the crowds at the finish! Amazing vegan chili and New England Clam Chowder was served at the British Beer Company! It was a great finish line scene!

Ice Cold Cape Cod MOVES Winter Warrior Challenge 2020! Exercise daily in January! Fight cancer. Get Healthy!
It is time to think about January. January 1, 2020 will soon be upon us. In 2019 Cape Cod MOVES logged over 11,000 miles. Teamwork! Please join our team Ice Cold Cape Cod MOVES when you register. We have a lot of fun all month. And different levels available to challenge everyone.
You can challenge yourself to any level, and can change your mind at anytime because you don’t have to indicate the level when signing up. You can start on a higher level, and drop down to a lower level if you can’t hit the daily mileage. But, if you miss a day, you’re out!
— Bronze: at least 1 mile/day
— Silver: at least 3 miles/day
— Gold: at least 5 miles/day
— Winter Warrior: at least 1 mile/day outdoors
For each level, you must run the minimum mileage every day, not just averaging that mileage. So if you run 5+ miles for 30 days, and 1 mile for 1 day, you will finish at the Bronze Level due to that 1 day of lower mileage. Each level is determined by your actual daily mileage, not your average daily mileage.
100% OF PROCEEDS TO CHARITY!
The 2020 Winter Challenge is produced by Boston’s RACE Cancer Foundation and will raise thousands of dollars to battle cancer. All proceeds will be distributed based on your charity choice when registering. Our 2020 partners are still being finalized.
