A half Marathon and 5k with the back drop of Narragansett Bay and the skyline of Downtown Providence. As an accomplished runner I consider this a route you can run with a few challenges from Mile 11 to 12. A route I enjoy running.
The race starts at Pierce Memorial Field and runs out on Vetrans memorial parkway to Bullicks Point then returns on the East Bay Bike Path and finishes with an Olympic style finish in the Stafium on the track.
There are 10 aid stations and several bathrooms along the route.
195 East Providence.
Pierce Memorial Field
The race will feature former marathon world record holder Stephen Jones and race director two time Boston Marathon Champion Geoff Smith
A great opportunity to meet and talk to two of runnings greatest marathon men.
