COVID-19 Update

As we continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 Pandemic we have made the decision to temporarily close registration for this event until public health policies regarding large scale gatherings become clear again.

If it is ultimately determined with state and local officials that we are unable to host the event, all registrants will be automatically deferred to next year’s event. We are unable to process any refunds.

Sincerely, The Gray Matter Marketing Team
Matt, Drew, Jon, Claire and Lisa

Bib Pick Up

Registered participants will receive a race bib and timing chip at registration which will be held October 4th and on race morning:

October 3 - 12:00 p.m - 5:00 p.m
Narragansett Parks and Recreation Building

Runners can pick up their bib and timing chip on race morning, however it is strongly recommended that all runners attend Saturday registration to alleviate race morning delays.



Here at Gray Matter Marketing, we recognize that life happens. Our defined refund, deferment and transfer policies allow runners to delay participation by a year or give someone else the chance to run in their place, both for a fee and before a specific deadline. Fees and deadlines are outlined on each event website, as well as in each registration waiver. Exceptions to this policy will not be granted for any reason, including injury, pregnancy, and family emergencies. We regret that we cannot make exceptions.



We are unable to process any refunds in these devastating and unpredictable times due to the novel COVID-19 pandemic.

If it is determined by state and local officials that we are unable to host the event as planned, all registrants will be automatically deferred to next year’s event.

Extreme Weather Cancellation Policy

Our events are held rain or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. We do not schedule "rain dates". Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry free when signing up.

Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
