ZOOMA Cape Cod Half Marathon & 10K
Saturday, September 24, 2016
Location: Sea Crest Beach Hotel, North Falmouth, MA
Start time: 7:30 a.m.
Registration open for 2016!*
See a different side of the Cape in the fall, when the crowds are gone and the quaint streets can be all yours for 13.1 or 6.2 miles. The historic Sea Crest Beach Hotel in North Falmouth has just undergone a massive renovation and it’s the host resort for the only ZOOMA race in the northeast. This light-filled, secluded resort overlooks Old Silver Beach and is surrounded by charming New England cottages — yet it’s only slightly more than an hour from both the Boston and Providence airports.
After the half marathon and 10K, the post-race After-Party Expo will take place in the Sea Crest’s beach and beachside courtyard… A great time to unlace your shoes and feel the sand between your toes before winter sets in.

The half marathon and 10K courses both finish at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel and run through cozy Cape Cod neighborhoods, including awe-inspiring ocean views. You’ll see the sail boats rock in the waves and watch the early-morning sun glimmer on the calm waters of Buzzards Bay. Tree lined roads through North Falmouth are the scene for the middle half of the half marathon course. Both courses include rolling hills to keep your quads alert, and finish within steps of the beach at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel, where you will rejuvenate your tired legs and create memorable moments with your BRFs (best running friends).
