Join us for the 36th annual classic style road race and start the year off right! Enjoy picturesque Bristol RI with a stunning course through Colt State Park and beautiful Poppasquash Rd.
Please note – part of the course is on an untreated bike path in Colt State Park. Depending on weather conditions, there may be uneven and slippery conditions, plan accordingly with yaktrax, snowshoes or careful footing. See the course map for the exact route. In the true “old school running” theme – the course is “you-get-what-you-get” and participants should sign up accepting these conditions.
