Hi Everyone!

I am excited to announce that I will be running Newport Rhode Races half marathon on 04.14.18! They do have 5k and full marathon options as well! If you are looking to do the full marathon, it is USATF certified and is a Boston Marathon Qualifier!

Location: Newport, RI. At first glance, oh, that looks beautiful! Mesmerizing views! Second glance, just how do I get there? Oh, if you are on the east coast and have access to I-95, it's a straight shot! Maybe a half hr off of it! A bit of a drive depending on where you are, but an easy one! If you are a bit further away, they do have travel info here!

Lodging: Rhode Races partnered with four nearby hotels with locked in rates. There are a variety of other options around the Wharf and outside of the Wharf  as well. Many of them offering amazing views. 

Other activities: The weekend of the race... Also kicks off Newport's Daffodil Day's festival! Newport Rhode Race kicks off in Easton’s Beach, where nearly 100,000 daffodils will be in bloom! Festival activities starting that weekend throughout the following week! More info regarding the festival can be found here!
I could re-post several more beautiful pictures that I have found of the Wharf and surrounding areas, but this hype video is about all you need!

Course route details, which also includes a mapmyrun link! Interactive maps can be found here!

Tracking: Free tracking and alerts!
Shirt: Tech T-shirt included. Don't have a pic available just yet. Will post once available. 

Medal! All about that bling! Medals to all half and full marathon finishers. 
The Newport Rhode Race is the first of the Rhode Master Series. 
Newport, Providence, Bristol, Jamestown, and Narragansett. Run all five and connect them all!
Now that I've signed up for the race, I'm going to head over to Athlinks to let my Athlink buddies know that I'm registered. I may also plug in a goal time. But I'm just happy to be doing this one! Will be beautiful!

Packet pickup: 
Thursday option: pickup at a local running store. Rhode Runner. Love the name!
Friday option: pick up at a brewery?! If you follow me, you may know I do enjoy a craft beer on occasion. ;) Newport Storm Brewery! I'm heading up to RI on Friday, so I may be picking up at the brewery. :)
Saturday: if you are unable to pick up your packet during the week, there is an option to pickup bright and early before the race. 

Join me on 04.14.2018 for the Newport Rhode Races 5k, half marathon, or full marathon! (I'll be doing the half) Be sure to use the code 'Bibrave' to save 10% off the entry fee!
