The Red Island Marathon will be held at the very scenic and slightly rolling Warwick City Park in Rhode Island. This course is wooded and scenic with parts overlooking Narragnsett Bay. The loop is a closed path free of auto traffic but keep to the left so that bikes can … MORE

    Looping three mile paved trail through thick forests and along the shores of a bay. This was one of the most beautiful courses I’ve ever ran … err … walked. Lots of small, rolling hills that would have been fun to attempt had my shins not been absolutely killing me by the end of this series. I think this would’ve been my favorite course of the series had I been able to fully tackle it. As usual, the New England Challenge crew was well organized and amazing!

    Overall Rating: Very pretty course.

    Course Difficulty: On a normal day, I would have loved this course…with shin splints, I wanted to quit. Small rolling hills in beautiful scenery.

    Course Scenery: Really pretty wooded run opening up to the bay.

    Race Production: Excellent! Cannot compliment this crew enough. Outstanding job all 6 days.

    Race Swag: Excellent! Received all 6 state shaped medals, and a giant 6 Marathons in 6 States in 6 Days Medal and a long sleeve tech shirt for completing the series.

    My Performance: I wanted to quit, but I was too far from home. This is the most painful marathon I have ever completed. Glad that I was able to muster the endurance to finish…for a while I thought I may not have it in me.

    This series as a whole was excellent, and if you’re looking to cross the New England States off of your 50 States list, this is a good way to do it.
