COVID-19 Update:

Dear Runners,

We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and we have made the decision to temporarily close registration for the 2020 Amica Newport Marathon until public health policies regarding large scale gatherings become clear again.

As of today we have made no final decisions and have all our fingers crossed that we can see all your faces at the starting line on October 11th.

If it is ultimately determined with state and local officials that we are unable to host the event, all registrants will be automatically deferred to next year’s event.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

Matt, Drew, Jon, Claire and Lisa

Athlete Shirts

All participants will receive a short sleeve tech shirt at Registration and Packet Pick-Up. Please note that shirts are ordered weeks in advance of the event and that size quantities are based on what participants indicated when they registered. For this reason, we ask that you please pick-up the shirt size you registered for.

Registration and Bib Pick-Up

LOCATION: Easton’s Beach Rotunda, 175 Memorial Blvd. Newport RI 02840 (map)

Registered participants will receive their race bib with timing chip, goody bag and athlete shirt at registration. Onsite registration is available for those wishing to sign-up.

All participants must show a photo ID at pick-up. Participants may pick-up for friends and family, but must provide a copy of the ID or a photo of the ID on their phone for verification.

Please note: Race participants picking up their bibs on Sunday will not receive their shirts and goody bags until after the race due to race morning time constraints.

Race Policies

Extreme Weather Policy

The oceanside course is exposed to wind and the elements. Runners should monitor the weather leading up to race day and prepare accordingly.

There is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. Entry fees are non-refundable. Please check the website, our Facebook page and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.

Registration Policies

Here at Gray Matter Marketing, we recognize that life happens. Our defined refund, deferment and transfer policies allow runners to delay participation by a year or give someone else the chance to run in their place, both for a fee and before a specific deadline. Fees and deadlines are outlined below as well as in each registration waiver. Exceptions to this policy will not be granted for any reason, including injury, pregnancy, and family emergencies. We regret that we cannot make exceptions.

Covid-19 Refund Policy

We are unable to process any refunds in these devastating and unpredictable times due to the novel COVID-19 pandemic. 

If it is determined by state and local officials that we are unable to host the event as planned, all registrants will be automatically deferred to next year’s event.
