2021 Event Registration
We are thrilled to announce that registration is now open for the 2021 Ocean Road 10k scheduled for Sunday, October 3rd. We look forward to hosting a capped field of runners while adhering to strict covid protocols to ensure the safety of participants, volunteers, and the community.
A percentage of proceeds from every entry fee will benefit the Narragansett Historical Society.
This scenic, flat 10k course starts at the Pt. Judith Lighthouse, runs north on Ocean Road under the famed Narragansett Towers and finishes in the northern parking lot at Town Beach. The race was recently voted the “Best 10K” in the Northeast by Competitor Magazine.
Deferred 2020 Registrants
All 2020 registrants that did not request a refund have been automatically deferred and entered into this year’s race. No further action is required for those individuals.
Our initial capacity is set at 2,000 runners which will be split into multiple waves.
Safety and Covid Protocols
We will continue to work with state and local officials throughout the months leading up to the race, and craft our protocols guided by science and based on the recommendations of our public health officials. Additional details and information will be posted prior to the race as guidelines evolve.
Per the CDC and the Rhode Island Department of Health, if you’re fully vaccinated you do not need to wear a mask outside. If you’re not fully vaccinated, please wear a mask at all points prior to crossing the start line, after the race, and whenever you’re within three feet of others.
Should the race be cancelled due to Covid, all registrants would receive an Eventbrite Credit for the full value of their registration. The credit balance can then be applied to the purchase price of a new ticket to any event on our calendar within two years of the day the credit is issued.

Race credits may be requested up to 30 days before the event in which you are registered. Race credits will not be granted if a request is made less than 30 days prior to the event.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I get a refund?
We do not offer refunds. However we do offer Eventbrite Credits for other events on our calendar.

Can I transfer my registration to another person?
No, we do not offer transfers. However, when you request and receive a race credit, you can use that credit to purchase a new ticket for another participant if you choose to do so.
How long is my Eventbrite Credit good for?
The balance of your registration is good for up to two years from the date it was issued, at which point it then expires.
When can I request an Eventbrite Credit?

Extreme Weather Policy
Our events are held rain or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. We do not schedule “rain dates”. Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry fee when signing up.
Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
