Enjoy the excitement of running before a pre-assembled cheering crowd in anticipation of the Annual Gaspee Days Parade! Over 1,600 runners each year flock to participate in this exciting event along the Parkway’s famed red, white, and blue road stripe. Challenge yourself to place a record among our top runners and win a prize or just do it for the fun – either way, you are supporting one of the area’s favorite community events, as all proceeds support funding the annual Gaspee Days Parade.

This year's race is dedicated to Ray Nelson and his years of service to the Gaspee Days 5k and the greater RI running community.

The race starts at 9:30 AM sharp on Broad Street at Chiswick Road, Cranston, RI. The course spans 5K (3.1 miles) and is bicycle calibrated by Ray Nelson. It runs south on Broad Street into Warwick onto Narragansett Parkway then turns at General Hawkins Drive and returns North. The race finish line is just past the parade reviewing stand at Rhodes Place. Timing and results are coordinated by Spitler Race Systems.  Due to the timing of the parade, the race has a strict cut-off time of one hour. You must be able to complete the 5k distance within this timeframe.   Race shirts to the first 1250 people registered.
