About The Jamestown Rhode Race
The Jamestown Rhode Race Half Marathon is a great opportunity to experience the beauty of Rhode Island. Held on September 30th 2023, this event offers participants a unique chance to run alongside some of the most beautiful coastline in America.
The route for the race starts at East Ferry Beach and winds its way around historic Fort Wetherill State Park before heading up Tucker Street which offers stunning views of Narragansett Bay. After winding through downtown Jamestown, runners will then make their way back along Conanicus Avenue, taking in panoramic views of Newport Harbor and surrounding areas. The race finishes back at East Ferry Beach where participants can enjoy a well-deserved rest after completing their 13 mile journey!
Typically, weather in late September tends to be quite mild with temperatures ranging from 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and dropping into low 50’s at night – perfect running conditions! Participants should also expect plenty of cheering crowds as local residents line up along the route to cheer on all those taking part in this fantastic event.
One thing which makes this particular half marathon stand out from others is that it has been officially certified by USA Track & Field as one of only three ‘certified’ races held annually throughout Rhode Island (the other two are held during May and October). This means that if you manage to finish within a certain timeframe you’ll qualify for an official USATF medal! Additionally, there are many awards given out for various categories such as fastest male/female runner or best overall team performance – so no matter your ability there’s something here for everyone!
All things considered, if you’re looking for an unforgettable half marathon experience set against some truly breathtaking scenery then look no further than Jamestown Rhode Race! With its flat terrain combined with beautiful coastal routes – not forgetting those incredible ocean views – it really is an event not to miss come late September 2023…
