I ran this half marathon for my Connecticut race in trying to complete the 50 States. The race is very well organized, cool expo the day before, good post race food, overall great production. I didn’t expect the elevation of the course to hit me as hard as it did. I definitely wished I had done more hill training in preparation for this race (I did none). Nothing overly daunting, but frequent enough that I think it affected my time.

This race was such a great run! I personally felt great the entire time on this mostly flat race. Only a few small hills to be concerned with and the very last 0.2-ish miles are cobblestone which will test your ankle strength. Great race production overall.

The race has you park away from the site and then take a bus to the starting line. I was worried about this at first, of missing a bus or not getting there at a time I would like. The race website emphasizes getting there early and that’s something I think made my race day go well. There were tons of buses getting people to the starting line, but get there as early as you can to avoid standing around in lines.
The race starts off with a medium sized hill. Nothing too daunting, but at least you have the energy to get up it right from the start. It was super foggy/rainy/overcast the entire race, so the beach scenery wasn’t as breathtaking as I’m sure it is on a sunny day. The water-side scenery was the highlight of the run for sure. You do run through some streets with mansions on them, so if you’re into architecture maybe this would be a good race for you?
The water stops were good, most having water and gatorade. Lots of opportunity to grab goo or a banana if you needed one.
In the end, the last mile takes you down the hill you ran up at the start. I got a light blue tech shirt with the Rhode Races logo on the front. It’s actually pretty comfortable and I train in it frequently. The medal is nice with some stained glass accents to it. Overall a good race!
