The Amica Newport Marathon and Half Marathon are races that you can feel 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, Providence, Aquidneck Land Trust, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, Boys Town New England, The YMCA Newport, and Clean Ocean Access.
The Amica Newport Marathon donates upwards of $50,000 to these local organizations and we encourage all runners to join our Fundraising Page to create an additional impact through the event.
