The Narragansett Summer Running Festival is a two-day event held on the Stonehill College campus. The 5K and 10K were held on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday. Runners also had the option of running the “Beat the Heat” challenge – combining either the 5 or 10K with the half.
The course was a winding loop through the campus – a mix of paved road, gravel, grass, and even a couple of wooden bridges. Without any form of self-seeding, the start was a bit jumbled, but the crowd quickly spread out and you could run comfortably. The volunteers were enthusiastic and encouraging which was welcome on such a hot day!
Vibe of the post-race party was low-keyed and friendly. And the Narragansett beer was frosty and so good. No medals, but the tech t-shirt design is fun.
