The Ragnar Relay is a 200-mile relay race from Hull, MA to Cape Cod – running up to Wellfleet and then back to South Yarmouth. Each team consists of 12 people who each run 3 legs over approximately 30 hours.

SMILE Mass will have several teams participating in the Ragnar Relay Cape Cod on May 8 – 9th. Would you like to run with us?

We have a few spots left on two of our teams. If you would like to run with us, there is a $1300 fundraising commitment. In exchange, SMILE Mass will provide bib numbers, vans, 3 t-shirts plus 1 long sleeve shirt, hotels at the half-way point and all the safety gear needed.

Falmouth Road Race – August 16, 2020

SMILE Mass has a team of runners participating in the Falmouth Road Race on August 16, 2019.

The race is seven miles long and begins in front of the Woods Hole Community Center, near the drawbridge on Water Street. The first three miles are narrow, hilly, winding tree-shaded roads, while the last four miles are open on the flat right next to Martha’s Vineyard Sound. A small steep hill lets you know that you are beginning the last half-mile of the race. Once you crest the hill it is all downhill to the finish.

New this year we will have an extra ordinary after party for all our SMILE Mass runners and their cheerleaders (friends and family) right at the finish line!

If you have run Falmouth before you know how big of a deal this is.

Soprano’s Casino by the Sea will be hosting us!

The fundraising commitment is $1000. SMILE Mass will provide your bib number and a running shirt. If you would like a hotel the night before, the fundraising commitment is $1500.

To get to the restaurant, simply cross the finish line and hug to the right – the restaurant will be right there. More details will follow. All SMILE Mass runners will be VIP guests of Soprano’s Casino by the Sea. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be served for all SMILE Mass runners and their guests.

To run Falmouth on behalf of SMILE Mass you are committing to raise $1000. If you would like a hotel room the night before, the fundraising commitment is $1500.

We still have a couple of bib numbers. Deadline to register is February 27, 2020. If you would like to run for SMILE Mass, email or call 617-967-9955.

Help SMILE Mass, Join Our Fundraising Efforts!

“What a wonderful cause and I would be proud to donate! I had a cousin who was two weeks older than I who died of MS in 2002, and we always were inseparable at the beach at Ocean Park when growing up. When she got so bad and was confined to a wheelchair, her family would bring her to a rental in Kinney Shores but there was no way to get her near the beach or ocean. To think of so many children who are missing out on the beach experience is heartbreaking. We’ll donate online and wish you the best!”
Love, Ellen & Steve
