Newport Rhode Races
April 15 @ 7:30 am - 1:30 pm
Join us in the City-by-the-Sea for this stunning marathon, half marathon and 5k. Newport Rhode Races partners with the upcoming Annual Newport Daffodil Days Festival to give you a true Spring Newport Experience. Our courses will pass along many of the over 1,200,000 starting to bloom around the City by the Sea. (We’ll call it Dash through the Daffodils!)
The Marathon will start at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, April 15, 2023 at Easton’s Beach in Newport, RI. The Half Marathon will start at 8:00 a.m. from the same location. The 5k will follow at 8:30 am – all from the same beautiful seaside start.
The Beach Mile will start at noon time, on the beach adjacent to the finish line. It is an out and back on Easton’s Beach, finishing under the Race Arch. As the race is on the beach, please plan for uneven surfaces, beach debris, seaweed, shells, all those wonderful items that we love about the ocean. This will be part of the challenge of completing the course.The marathon course is USATF certified and is a Boston Marathon Qualifier.
