The Ocean Road 10k is a 6.2 mile run/walk that starts at Pt. Judith Lighthouse and finishes at Town Beach in Narragansett, Rhode Island. Ocean Road's coastal scenery and smooth surface make for an ideal 10k course. As this is a point to point race runners will occupy the right hand lane traveling north with very few intersections further enhancing the course layout. Once runners have passed under the famed Narragansett Towers they will finish inside the north parking lot of Town Beach.
Registered runners and walkers are welcome to enjoy the Ocean Road 10k course however, police details will only be in place from 8 am until 11 am. We expect all participants can finish the course in under three hours.
The course runs along Ocean Road and is fairly exposed to wind. Runners should monitor the weather leading up to race day and prepare accordingly. There is no rain date and no refunds will be permitted. Please review our cancellation policy.
