The sleepy town of Falmouth, located in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, is home to the seven mile road race that runs a picturesque length of the Massachusetts coastline. A historic race, past winners include Bill Rodgers, Frank Shorter, Alberto Salazar, and Joan Benoit-Samuelson. In the past few years, however, an American has been hard pressed to crack the top three. And with Solinsky off the scene for as long as he's been, it may be a difficult ride.
Good performance or not, it's great to see the former American Record holder back on his feet. We hope that this race is just a stepping stone into the form of Solinsky of yester-year.
My first "race" will be the Falmouth Road Race. Very excited to put the OTC singlet on again for 1st time in 13 months.— Chris Solinsky (@ChrisSolinsky) July 31, 2012
