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 16, 2022 at Easton's Beach in Newport, RI. The Half Marathon will start at 7:45 a.m. from the same location.  The 5k will follow at 8:00 am - all from the same beautiful seaside start. 

Beach Mile will start at noontime, 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.

Please respect our native environment - STAY OFF THE DUNES, use trash receptacles, and recycle as much as possible. 

Please Note: Newport Rhode Races will be happening rain or shine. Because of the logistics of planning for a race of this size, we cannot offer refunds for any reason. In the event that weather is severe enough to create an unsafe environment for participants, organizers will cancel the event with no refunds issued.

  6. Virtual Half Marathon

    If you can't make it on race day, join us virtually! Sign up by race day and complete the distance between April 1 and April 30 on your own time and course. Instructions for submitting your results - https://runsignup.com/vr/2020NPT. Please note - The virtual runners will be prohibited from joining us on race day if we are under strict participant caps. This is to ensure that we abide by all local and state guidelines and ensure we live up to the demands and restrictions placed on us as a condition of our race permit. We have set a low participant cap at this time as we are not sure what the State will have for COVID protocols in April. We may be able to open up more spots once social gathering restrictions are eased, so we would encourage you to sign up for the wait list instead of the virtual race if wish to join us in person as we will pull from the waitlist first. There is no fee to sign up for the waitlist, you are only charged once you accept the bib into the race. You can alway sign up for the Virtual event at a later date as that is unlikely to sell out.
