Working with the New Balance Falmouth Road Race
If you follow me anywhere, you’ve probably caught on to the news that I’m running the Boston Marathon this April! I sorta let that sneakily pass by, because I couldn’t yet share the rest of the story… but today I can!
I’m ecstatic to share that I’ve been hired by the New Balance Falmouth Road Race for 2015! I will be acting as Special Projects Coordinator, helping in pretty much every aspect across the board. This role calls upon my LOVE of running and 15 years of marketing experience rather than my photography, and I’m pretty excited to be merging the two! (and I’m sure I’ll take some photos too ;-)) I’ll be working with nonprofits, elite athletes and host families, social media and marketing strategy, race-day logistics and post-race reporting. Like I said – across the board!
Dave McGillivray Sports Enterprises (DMSE) manages both the Boston Marathon and the New Balance Falmouth Road Race – and more than 30 races and walks each year! It’s an honor to be working within such an incredible organization!
I will physically be in the New Balance Falmouth Road Race offices a few hours a day from May to August – so stop on in and say hi! (don’t worry, I’ll remind you when the snow clears). Unfortunately, I won’t be able to run the race itself, so I’m considering Boston a fair trade ;-)
About: The New Balance Falmouth Road Race was established in 1973 and has become one of the premier running events of the summer season. Each year the race draws an international field of Olympians, elite runners and recreational runners out to enjoy the scenic 7-mile seaside course. An estimated 75,000 spectators line the course and finish area to cheer the 12,800 official race entrants (!!). Online registration will be open for Falmouth residents and residential taxpayers May 1 – May 7 at 11:59pm. Registration for the non-Falmouth resident lottery will be open from May 8 at 12:00am until May 17 until 11:59pm. Lottery results will be available on or before May 22, 2015.
