Providence Rhode Races routes
The course is mostly flat with some gradual elevation changes. There is a slight upgrade on Wickenden Street at 3 miles. There is a challenging hill just after the 5-mile mark. The next short hill (about 50 meter is at 19 miles). There is also another short 50-meter hill around 20 miles. The last hill is approximately at 23 miles. The rest of the course is mostly flat running.
The course is a nice mix of historic urban and rural neighborhoods as the race starts in Downtown Providence and heads south towards the East Bay and Barrington, Rhode Island. The tree lined East Bay Bike path provides plenty of shade and scenic views of the Providence river and skyline.
The course is a nice mix of historic urban and rural neighborhoods as the race starts in Downtown Providence and heads along the Providence River to India Point Park before heading down tree lined Blackstone Boulevard towards Pawtucket. The course then winds through Pawtucket before heading back down the famous Boulevard and down along the Providence River, and finishing back downtown.
The 5k course will follow the start and finish of our larger races but enjoy a turn around in beautiful India Point Park. The race will kick off 15 mins after our half marathon at 8:15 am at the same start banner as the rest of the Rhode Races. The course follows Memorial Blvd and South Water St to India Point Park paths before heading back to the finish arch.
The Kids Run presented by Girls on the Run RI is a fun run for children of all ages. The short out and back course caters to Rhode Island’s pint sized runners and their families.
