The Falmouth Amateur Radio Association is seeking additional hams to assist in the Cape Cod Marathon on October 28, 2007. According to the club web site, “This is a true marathon and counts as a qualifier for many of the larger marathons. It might not attract as big a field as the [Falmouth] Road Race, but this is one race where FARA members are often busy in chase cars and on chase bikes, tracking down errant runners who stray from the course and may be in need of medical assistance.”
Hams participants also provide coordinating communications for the officials in addition to the medical communications.
A “pre-marathon meeting” is scheduled the day before on Saturday, October 27 in the rear of the Town Hall.
