Aderire Cape Cod Marathon
The Cape Cod Marathon began in 1978, run for first 6 years at Otis AFB, and since then, on a scenic one-loop certified course in Falmouth. This year marks the 37th running. The Cape Cod Marathon Weekend is hosted by The Falmouth Track Club
The course includes both flat portions, including all of the first ten miles and final three miles, and rolling mounds at points between the 11th and 23rd miles. The maximum course elevation is about 100 feet (30 m).
The temperature on Cape Cod in late October typically ranges between 45 and 60; typically the day is clear with a westerly breeze; and typically it is the peak of the fall foliage season. The course has been designed to minimize the effects of the wind (assuming the wind is blowing from the west); i.e., in exposed areas, the prevailing wind would be a tail wind and in areas where you might have a head wind, you are protected by trees and growth.
Punti salienti del corsoThe course includes both flat portions, including all of the first ten miles and final three miles, and rolling mounds at points between the 11th and 23rd miles. The maximum course elevation is about 100 feet (30 m). The marathon passes through several of Falmouth's historic villages and residential hamlets. The course begins at the village green in Falmouth proper. It proceeds east along Nantucket Sound, an extension of the Atlantic Ocean, along the high bluffs of the Victorian resort of Falmouth Heights, across the rivers cutting through the beaches of Menauhant to the wooded lanes of the community of Davisville. There it turns north and moves by estuarine overlooks on Waquoit Bay towards the village green of Waquoit. Rolling inland, runners pass cranberry bogs on the path to the village of East Falmouth and through pine forest before reaching Hatchville. Straight west to the shore of Buzzards Bay, the course turns south of the modern resort of North Falmouth in favor of the serrated rises rounding the inlets of West Falmouth village. Proceeding south, runners pass through secluded Beebe Woods and by kettle holes that separate the exclusive settlements of Chappaquoit, Wood Neck, Sippewissett, and Quissett on rocky waterfront outcroppings abutted by salt marshes. The course rounds the southern tip of the town as it winds through the bustling streets in the port village of Woods Hole, otherwise renowned for its world-class scientific community. In Woods Hole, the route joins that of the Falmouth Road Race for a time, including the hallmark passing of Nobska Light, a celebrated lighthouse dating to 1829, in the 22nd mile. Silvery oyster ponds line the course along Vineyard Sound before runners reach the flat boulevards leading back through to Falmouth's village green and the finish line.
