Shuttles

Shuttle service will begin promptly at 5:00 AM and will run continuously. Please arrive early and queue up for the shuttles with race participants having priority over spectators. We strongly recommend all participants plan on being parked, and on a shuttle by 6:00 AM at the latest.

Shuttle service will run through 2:30 PM, providing rides back to the Second Beach and Aquidneck Island Industrial Park parking lots throughout the day.

Arrive Early

Nothing beats coastal running in Newport — but for all Aquidneck Island’s beauty, traffic and parking can be difficult. Please be sure to afford enough time to reach your designated parking location, shuttle to the race start, and prepare for the race. We advise arriving to your parking lot as close to 5:00 AM as possible.

Carpooling and biking to the start are strongly encouraged.

Traffic and Community Impact

We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to share the beauty of Newport and Middletown with our runners. Please be respectful of the local communities and do your best to only discard any clothing layers and trash at aid stations and/or mile-markers.

The race starts and finishes at Easton’s Beach. Roads will be managed by the Newport and Middletown Police Departments and will largely remain open to traffic throughout the day, but delays and temporary stoppages can be expected from 7:00 AM – 2:00 PM throughout the course.

Discover Newport

“Home to spectacular coastal scenery, awe-inspiring architecture, a thriving waterfront downtown, and welcoming hospitality, Newport, Rhode Island is considered by many to be a shining gem in the coastal crown of New England. From weekend getaways spent touring the famed Gilded Age mansions that once were the summer playground for socialite families with names like Astor and Vanderbilt to an afternoon of wine tasting through Newport’s three scenic vineyards, the options for interesting activities, distinctive stories, and enticing photo opportunities are countless!”
