    Race day temperature was in the high 50s at the start and rose to the low 40s at the finish. It was sunny with a light breeze.
    The course was largely waterfront following roads and greenway paths. The road was not closed for the race and several cars were parked within the race cones. Drivers were moving at slow speeds so there was no real danger at any point. The course had a surprising amount of elevation change.
    The portion of the race on the greenway was very scenic. The trees provided shade and the water was lined by a few nice estate homes and a lighthouse. The race finished on the track in East Providence. The was a youth flag football game going on as we lappped the track, making it one of the weirdest finishes I’ve ever experienced.
    The aid station only provided water. If you need gu or electrolytes you need to bring your own. The volunteers were friendly and upbeat.
    The finisher shirt was a cotton t-shirt. The finished medal was above average.
    The was a nice small race. I’d recommend it if you’re in Rhode Island on race weekend.

    – Course was a generally flat looped course around East Providence through residential neighborhoods and along a converted rail to bike trail. There were a tough hill in the last 3 miles that really challenged exhausted runners.
    – Conditions were insanely hot when I raced so can’t really speak to the difficulty.
    – Cheap race series means minimal amenities. Medals for all competitors. T-shirts for runners who pre-register.
    – Finish line food/beverage was water, tomato pie, bananas and chips. Not really enough for recovery.
