Join us in the City-by-the-Sea for this stunning marathon, half marathon and 5k.  Newport Rhode Races kicks off Daffodil Days with the races starting from Easton's Beach where nearly 100,000 daffodils will be in bloom. (We'll call it Dash through the Daffodils!)

The Marathon will start at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, April 14, 2018 at Easton's Beach in Newport, RI. The Tufts Health Plan Half Marathon will start at 7:45 a.m. from the same location.  The 5k will follow at 8:00 am - all from the same beautiful seaside start. 

The marathon course is USATF certified and is a Boston Marathon Qualifier.

Please respect our native environment - STAY OFF THE DUNES, use trash receptables, and recycle as much as possible. 

Please Note: Newport Rhode Races will be happening rain or shine. Because of the logistics of planning for a race of this size, we cannot offer refunds for any reason. In the event that weather is severe enough to create an unsafe environment for participants, organizers will cancel the event with no refunds issued.
