New Balance Falmouth Mile

Falmouth, MA

Started in 1995, the New Balance Falmouth Mile is a companion event to the New Balance Falmouth Road Race. Taking place at the Falmouth High School James Kalperis track, behind the Expo fieldhouse, the Mile is actually two events – one for invited world-class milers and the other for Massachusetts high school athletes.

Rather than sit watching Olympic-class runners on TV you can instead line the track, up close and personal. Over $12,500 in prize money is on the line for these speedsters! Then stay for the High School Mile to see our up-and-comers!

Torrence, Martinez Win Falmouth Mile

August 11, 2012

Martinez and Anderson run #1 and #2 fastest women’s Mile times of the year
Jim Gerweck, The Mile wire

FALMOUTH, Mass. – (August 11, 2012) – Last year’s Falmouth Mile, a track precursor to the larger, older 7-mile road race, proved to be one of the deepest ever run on American soil, with the top 10 men dipping under the magical 4-minute mark.

It would have been hard to equal that performance again, and indeed, swirling, humid winds threw an additional impediment into the mix. Nonetheless, this year’s edition on Saturday evening came close, with David Torrence (right) leading five other men under 4, turning in a creditable 3:55.79 victory.
