The finish line is truly unique as participants will enter the Fort through the north gate and finish on the parade field.

Largest Team Prize: The team with the most members at the end of online registration will be awarded a prize. 

Fastest Team Prize: Fastest team time will be based on the top three times with at least one male and one female participant tallying.

2.2 Mile Fun Run!

In order to showcase Fort Adams State Park to runners of all speeds and ages, we have changed the 5k race to a  2.2 mile Fun Run around scenic Fort.
The race will share the start and finish lines with the 10 Miler and start 10 minutes after.  
The Fort Adams Trust is a non-profit tasked with directing and supporting the stabilization, restoration, maintenance and operation of Fort Adams as a public historic site.  

We are proud to have raised over $14,000 for the trust in our first two years.
The second annual Ocean Road 10k will be held on October 5, 2014 starting at Pt. Judith Lighthouse and finishing at the Narragansett Town Beach. A percentage of proceeds from this fast, flat and scenic 10k course will benefit the Narragansett Historical Society.   
The second annual 4 Bridges Ride sponsored by the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority is a 26 mile charity ride on September 21 that allows cyclists an opportunity to cross the Verrazzano, Pell, Sakonnet and Mt. Hope Bridges connecting the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations   
One of the most unique road race experiences in the northeast - On October 26 thousands will run or walk across the Claiborne Pell Bridge from Jamestown to Newport, R.I. The primary goals of the Pell Bridge Run are to fundraise for local not-for-profit organizations and to promote a healthy/active lifestyle.
