In it’s 10th Year – The Ocean’s Run NEW MARATHON…½ Marathon and 4 Miler will be back at Misquamicut State Beach venue and all courses are USATF Certified!  This race has always been a great tune-up for Boston and other early Spring Marathons or just a great ½ to complete. This race winds through the quiet Westerly beach communities of Misquamicut and Weekapaug.  There are water views at nearly every stretch of the race.  With hardly any climbs to speak of, this race is fast and furious!!  The race starts and finish at the Misquamicut State Beach!  A portion of the proceeds to benefit The Westerly Track and Athletic Club!

Voted on of Competitor Magazine’s Top 25 Half Marathons!
