Frances A. Crane Wildlife Management Area, Cape Cod

The primary drive behind this race is to raise money for charitable organizations. As the race motto says, “Run Forward. Give Back.”
Registration for the Cape Cod Trail Race is expected to open October 17 at 9 am!
The race will be limited to 350 runners (100 more than last year!) and the kids run limited to 100 (50 more than last year!).
Distances remain the same, though with a different pricing structure:
10K – $30, Half Marathon – $45, Full Marathon & 50K – $55
The kids race remains free, but will be held in the afternoon at 1:30 pm.
And you can expect the same great pre- and post-race food as last year!
The Cape Cod Trail Race will be joined by Cape Cod Food, Fitness and Fun Expo the day before the race on Saturday, April 11 at Ballymeade, just a couple of miles away from the race site.
What will there be? Restaurants providing samples, demonstrations, info sessions, and the opportunity to try a number of different activities. Lots of activities for kids too!
The afternoon will be topped off by a keynote speaker, recognition of community members, and a pre-race dinner.
Much more information to come! But be sure to put not only the race on your calendar, but this fun and informative afternoon too.
Congratulations to all of you! You helped to raise the following donation totals:
Independence House: $960
Falmouth Military Support Group: $1050

Savings photos from Flickr can be a bit tricky. Here’s a “how to”:
1. From a page with the thumbnails, click on the pic you’re interested in.
2. It’ll come up in a new window and to the right of it will be symbols of a star, speech bubble, box with an arrow and three dots.
3. Left click on the three dots icon and in the menu that pops up will be an option for “Download / All Sizes”.
4. Then you’ll be able to download from a selection of sizes; just select the size you’d like.
A few of the people you’ll see on race day!
Two friends go for a run in Crane – all photos are from the course.
As the snow was beginning to fall… Mount Zig – with its ocean views (though not so much today) – is part of the trail races.
