Meet Paul Clerici, author of “A History of the Falmouth Road Race”

HistoryoftheFRRPaul Clerici, author of the recently-published book A History of the Falmouth Road Race, will be at Eight Cousins Bookstore in Falmouth on Thursday, August 13, at 7 pm.

The seven-mile Falmouth Road Race catapulted Cape Cod onto the running radar. Frank Shorter winning gold in the 1972 Olympic marathon inspired local barkeep Tommy Leonard to start a race in his own town. That inaugural race in 1973 garnered fewer than one hundred runners. Participation soon swelled to the thousands, thanks to the success of organizers, volunteers, and talented fields, including running legends like Bill Rodgers and Catherine Ndereba, as well as wheelchair champions Bob Hall and Tatyana McFadden.

Follow author Paul C. Clerici along every bend and uphill battle of the race’s history from the early stages of the running boom to resetting the road-racing calendar.
