Look no further. You’ve found your spring marathon or half marathon! The Providence Marathon returns on May 1, 2022, for another exciting run through the Rhode Island capital. With historic downtown sites, scenic Providence River views, and the charm of the city’s surrounding neighborhoods, you’ll enjoy memorable miles whether it’s your first marathon or 100th half marathon. Plus, you’ll enjoy a free beer (if of age), music, vendor giveaways at our rockin’ after-party.
So, what are you waiting for? Secure your spot today.
Our flat and smooth course has become a favorite of Boston Qualifiers and first-time marathoners, alike.
The race starts in Downtown Providence before heading south toward the East Bay and Barrington, Rhode Island. That’ll take you on the tree-lined bike path that offers shade and scenic views of the Providence River. You’ll loop back around in Barrington, taking some of the same route back while running toward the shadow of the city’s skyline. Once you reach the finish back downtown by the Rhode Island State House, the after-party begins!
The course is USATF-certified and is an official Boston Marathon qualifier.
