Last night Jason and I headed over to the Falmouth High School Field House to pick up my race bib and check out the Falmouth Road Race Expo.
We decided to go on Thursday night hoping it would be the least crowded (before all the “out-of-towners” came in for the race!) and since Falmouth is the next town over from where we are on the Cape (literally!) it was an easy trip!
Bib pick up was a breeze and I was even able to pick up my friend Pat’s bib for him by just showing a picture of his license that he had e-mailed to me.
In the expo I grabbed our “goody bags” and walked around for a bit checking out the vendors. It was definitely a smaller expo and there were a lot of empty booths (I’m assuming not all vendors arrive in time for the Thursday night opening of the expo).
Jason and I each picked up a Falmouth Road Race shirt and I grabbed a new running visor and we were on our way (we had dinner reservations at our favorite Falmouth restaurant!).
When we got home after dinner I immediately dissected my race bag to see what was inside!
Great material and totally re-useable! I heard a lot of people commenting on how much they liked them!
** please excuse the crappy pictures, not much space for pictures up here and it’s raining outside!
The bag had all your usual sponsor pamphlets and flyers, plus a race program, poster and COFFEE MUG!
Personally I think this is brilliant! I LOVE coffee mugs and we’ve been trying to stock our place up here with all Cape Cod “themed” mugs so this is a perfect addition! (As is the poster which will definitely be framed and hung up here!)
The race program is a great souvenir too and has a lot of really interesting information on the race history and stories from past runners.
Overall a small but well organized expo with very helpful and friendly volunteers, and MAJOR points in my book for the coffee mug (which I’ve decided I can’t drink out of until after the race!).
P.S. – if you’d like to track me on Sunday you can sign up HERE!
