While this year has proved challenging for everyone, we are optimistic that 2021 will mark a return to live, in-person road races. We plan to open registration in early 2021 for next year’s race, scheduled to be held on Sunday, October 10th.
Stay safe. Masks on.
2020 Race Canceled:
We are sad to announce that in light of the ongoing pandemic the Amica Newport Marathon scheduled for Sunday, October 11, 2020 has been canceled.
We have spent the last five months planning, drafting protocols and crossing our fingers that we would be able to host you this Fall. But the health and safety of our runners, volunteers, staff and community are paramount and after consulting with local and state officials we do not believe that it is responsible to host an event of this size at this time.
All registered runners have the following three options:
1. Automatic Deferral
No further action is required on your part. All registrants are automatically entered into next year’s event scheduled for Sunday, October 10, 2021 unless they request one of the following options:
2. Full Refund
In order to request a full refund of your 2020 entry, please email us at email@example.com with your name and email that you registered with. Please allow for 7-21 days for us to process your request. All refund requests must be made prior to January 1, 2021.
3. Donate your Entry
Our core mission with the Amica Newport Marathon is to showcase our beautiful island while giving back to the community. The event donates over $50,000 from race fees annually to our local charitable partners, 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.
Due to the cancellation of this year’s event we are devastated to not be able to make this contribution. If you are willing to donate your entry to our charitable mission, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request and we will donate 100% of your entry to our non-profit partners.
