Over the past few weeks, we have been wrestling daily with some big decisions regarding the Coronavirus. Each day brings new insights and information to us all. This recent wave of direction from our local officials has led to these next steps regarding the Newport Rhode Races event. While we are not able to safely execute the 2020 Newport Rhode Races in the traditional manner, we are transitioning this year’s event to a Virtual Race.

This decision was made in the best interest of the health and safety for everyone-City residents, runners, volunteers, vendors & medical professionals.  We are being challenged like never before, as you are. But we believe that running should and can still continue, and it will help us overcome and deal with our current stressors. 

We have worked hard during this last week to finalize a variety of options for you that will best suit your individual needs, prevent you from forfeiting your entry fee or incurring any additional fees.  We are committed to honesty, transparency and helping our running community celebrate the best in life right now.

Please contact the event organizer with any questions.
