Running is a Team Sport

However have you been in a race and you started chatting it up with the people around you? Just as a means of diversion or as way to help them if they are struggling? When you pass others, or others pass you, how often to you give words of encouragement? I am guessing this happens […]

Return to Racing

We have about one month until the return of our race season. We kick off the season on April 24th with the inaugural Pomham Rocks 5/10k in Riverside. It has been one year since we had to totally alter our business and nearly shut down. In the meantime, we have been on a rollercoaster. Like […]

Winter Running Gear

“There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.” I love to run in the winter, next to Fall, it is my favorite running season. I love the way the cold air makes you feel alive, the crispness of your breath. When it snows, I am like a kid on a snow day […]

RUNNING IN 2020 – A year to reflect on our love for the sport.

It is clear that 2020 has not been the best year for most of us; it has challenged many both physically and mentally. However, with hardships come the determination and hope to keep going and continue to push forward. In times like these it shows what is truly important to each and every one of us; it challenges us to determine what truly matters in making us happy. For many the answer to happiness may be loved ones, a safe place to live, or a fresh home-cooked meal. However, here at Rhode Races we discovered that many of our runners found this happiness in one of their favorite hobbies: running.

Run to Heal – a Celebration of Wellness

We are so excited to be hosting next weekend’s Ocean State Rhode Race!

Running has always been therapy for us: Mind-clearing, soul-searching, trouble-shooting, […]

August Race Director’s Challenge

To say that 2020 has been a rough year so far might be an understatement – professionally and personally. Everyone has a story as to how they have been affected by the virus. Some have had the ultimate loss; the loss of loved ones, loss of jobs, loss of security. For those of us that […]

Like many of you, the daily news has been especially troubling these days for us. Between Covid, politics, riots and shootings, we are searching for positivity. So when Alyssa Mason approached us with an idea for a virtual race that was something positive and proactive that we could be a part of – we immediately […]
