Runners can pick up their bib and timing chip on race morning at the race start/shuttle area, however, it is strongly recommended that all runners attend Friday or Saturday registration to alleviate race morning delays.

There will be no on-site registration on race morning.

NEW! Waved Start

Runners and walkers will be asked to organize by pace time with elite runners going off first and walkers going last. We ask all participants to align themselves by the appropriate pace so we can ensure a smooth race. There will be volunteers and members of the race staff assisting with the pacing process.

First Wave (7:15AM): 9 minute pace and faster
Second Wave (7:18AM): 9 to 11 minute pace
Third Wave (7:22AM): 11 to 14 minute pace
Fourth Wave (7:27AM): 15 minute pace and slower

Please Stay in the right lane and Do not delay while onthe bridge.
With the presence of the median barriers we are no longer able to divert traffic to the Westbound lanes on the bridge. Rhode Island State Police will now escort traffic over the Pell Bridge during the race in the East bound high speed lanes while runners/walkers will only have the right hand lane on the bridge to run/walk. It is critical to the success of the event and for the safety of all participants that you remain in the right hand lane throughout the race. We also ask that all participants please resist delaying for too long at the top of the Bridge to take photographs. We have hired additional photographers that will be stationed on the Bridge to take pictures of participants. Please enjoy the views, but keep moving throughout the event.


Registered runners may request a full-refund of their paid fee up to four weeks prior to the event. No refunds will be granted in the final 28 days before the event. Please contact us about refunds and race deferals at
