EVENTS & EXPERIENCES: The 43rd Falmouth Road Race – Hot, Humid, but Hopeful

by Kyle Northrop, Marathon Sports staff member

falmouthstartIf you want to run the Falmouth Road Race, finishing the historic 7 miles may be the easiest part of the journey. Fighting the lottery to get in and fighting to get over the bridge to pick up your bib number seem like even more of an ordeal than actually running the race itself.

This year I was shut out of the lottery but was lucky enough to be given...

echelon2My footwear options are limited. With a low arch and wide foot, it can be difficult to find a shoe that really fits well. I recently had the good fortune of testing the Saucony Echelon 5 and I think I found my new go-to!

Kids and adults alike love running because it provides a sense of freedom. After sitting in front of a computer for 8 hours, I need a run to balance my life – but I watch my kids and they run everywhere. All day. Think about it: kids run through the halls at school, they run to the bathroom, they run away from taking a bath, they runkidsrunon the...

by Rebecca Tadema-Wielandt, Marathon Sports Yarmouth store manager

IMG_20150805_164841773Let me begin my review of the Better Than Naked Singlet from The North Face by saying that I have never really been a fan of running in the summer months in New England. ‘It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity,’as they say. I say, it’s both! But after the insanity of last winter and being forced to do too many long runs on the...

by Jamie Norton, Marathon Sports staff member

IMG_2255I have struggled over the last few years to find a lightweight training shoe that will accommodate my wide foot. Finally, New Balance has bucked the trend of cutting width to cut weight, and brought a shoe to the table that combines a light and responsive midsole – 7.5oz for men and 6.5oz for women – with a spacious toebox. The Vazee Pace, priced at...

Launched last month, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32 [available in stores] brings a new feel and a lighter, faster approach to this old classic.

This shoe is the enduring symbol of Nike Running – now in it’s 32nd generation, the Pegasus was, for a lot of runners, THE original running shoe. So Nike isn’t trying to...
