The Ocean’s Run Half Marathon, 4 Miler & Kids’ Fun Run

In Partnership with the Misquamicut Business Association

In it’s 8th Year – The Ocean’s Run ½ Marathon and 4 Miler has a great new venue and super new course!  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!
