Rhode Races produces authentic race experiences in iconic locations.

A Rhode Island Benefit Corporation – our core mission includes being a benefit for the social good through fundraising, goal achievement, self-esteem building, environmental awareness and support to growing the running community in Rhode Island and beyond.

Environmental

Rhode Races cares about our environment. Examples of this include recycling efforts at our races, donating shoes and clothing to Crossroads and/or Big Brothers/Big Sisters and partnering with Medals4Mettle to recycle un-used medals.

Charity

Rhode Races encourages racing for a cause. We have a deep CrowdRise integration and designate specific charities for each race. We support charitable efforts and their causes by helping to mobilize volunteers and through direct donations.

Health and Wellness

We encourage and create opportunities for health and wellness through education and support.  We partner with specific charities, such as Girls on the Run RI and DreamFar HS Marathon Team, that show how running can benefit not only your physical being but also your mental health. It is our mission to foster and grow the running community in RI with goals to increase participation in youth and adult programs and to encourage life long healthy habits.

Community

Rhode Races consciously acts as a good neighbor in the communities that we run through by trying to lessen the impact in neighborhoods.  We promote the community’s assets through tourism-related activities, restaurants and lodging.

Proud member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA).  Learn more about this group and how it supports the running community at this link.
