NEWPORT, R.I. — The BankNewport 10 Miler will host runners from near and far in early June for a road race starting and finishing at Fort Adams.
When the starting gun fires on Sunday, June 2, at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, participants will cross the start line just outside the historic walls of Fort Adams, exit the State Park, turn right onto Harrison Avenue past Hammersmith farms and follows a looped route that takes them on a scenic tour of some of Newport’s most famous vistas, including Brenton Point, Green Bridge, Gooseberry Beach, and Bellevue Avenue. The course concludes with runners charging through the North Gate of Fort Adams for a stadium-style finish where they’ll collect their medals and enjoy a post-race beer garden, provided by Ragged Island Brewing Company.
BankNewport is the title sponsor for the 2019 event. RunNewport, Ragged Island, Fitzpatrick Team of Remax Newport, NPT Healthworks, and Hippeas Snacks are also event partners. The event is produced by Gray Matter Marketing, who’s event portfolio also includes the Amica Newport Marathon, the Craft Brew Races series and the 4 Bridges Ride. The 2019 BankNewport 10 Miler benefits the Fort Adams Trust and the Boys and Girls Club of Newport County — a portion of every registration is donated directly to these deserving organizations.
A limited number of tickets remain for this event, and online registration will close on Thursday, May 30th. Interested participants are encouraged to register ahead of time, online, to ensure a spot on the starting line.
