I had a great time at the Newport Marathon. The race was well-run, with smooth packet pickup and gear check, ample water stops, and a great start/finish location.
The scenery, especially along the first half of the course, is stunning. Waves were crashing up along the seawall as we cruised by and the jaw-dropping mansions loomed over us.
I didn’t love the number of sharp turns the course incorporated and, like others have said, the second half becomes a bit of a slog as the best parts of the scenery drop away and the rolling hills add up, but it was overall a worthy course and I was able to meet my goal time.
Hotels in the area are unfortunately pricy, but it was worth it for me. I would definitely recommend.

Be prepared for heat (there’s not a lot of shade on the back half of the course, either) and for the solid climb through Miles 6 and 7, but with that in mind, this is a great race to run. Water stops every mile, spectators out on their front porches, mountain and riverside views. The website was a bit lacking, but know that the organization is all put into the race.

This race is well run but low key. Don’t expect a ton of spectators, and the course on the rail trail is a bit boring. But it’s flat and fast and you might just PR or BQ.

This was a well-organized midsize city race. You get a good loop around Austin, though it’s not always terribly scenic. Great crowd support, though, and a fun run all around. A bit hilly in the first half but nothing too terrible.
