The Amica Newport Marathon and Half Marathon are races that you can feel particularly good about running. By participating, you’re not only doing something good for yourself, but you’re also helping others. The race’s charitable partners are the Ronald McDonald House of Providence, Aquidneck Land Trust, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, Boys Town New England, The Newport County YMCA, and Clean Ocean Access.
The Amica Newport Marathon donates upwards of $50,000 to these local organizations. We encourage all runners to join our Fundraising Page to create an additional impact through this event.
