Join us as we celebrate one of Rhode Island's maritime treasures - the Pomham Rocks Lighthouse.  Run through beautiful Riverside and choose from a 5k or 10k distance and help us raise some funds for this historic piece of architecture.  The 10k race includes sweeping views of the lighthouse.  

Pomham Rocks Lighthouse sits on an island in the Providence River about 200 yards off the shoreline of the Riverside neighborhood of the city of East Providence, Rhode Island. The light was established in 1871.


The 10k race will start at 8am at Larisa Park, with the 5k following at 8:30am.  Bib pick up will also take place at Larisa Park starting at 6:30am

There will be one aid station on the 10k course, at the Squantum Club turn-around.  The 5k will not have water on course, please plan on carrying your own hydration if you need it.

Race shirts are limited to the first 300 registrants.

If you can't join us in person, but would still like to support the cause, please consider joining us in mind, if not in body, with our Virtual options.  Learn more about the Virtual Race here.
