Multiple Boston Marathon Champions to participate at Narragansett Bay Half & 5k.

Here are two local and rewarding half marathons (Narragansett Bay Half Marathon & 5k and the Worcester Half Marathon & 5k) coming up in June and July that I am co-directing. Both events will also have a 5k run too. See below for details on each event.

All finisher's in the 5k and the half marathons will receive a beautiful finisher's medallion. We also have tech shirts for the first 1,000 to register at both events. At the Narragansett Bay half we will have bands along the route with a main act in the stadium at the finish.

I myself am training for these two events and I am planning on running the half or the 5k (depending on how training goes) I will be announcing soon another fellow Boston Marathon champion that will also run with us. 

Finally check out all the RunRhody races below to plan your race schedule for 2015. You can save on all events by registering early.

Keep training and stay healthy.
