My Favorite Running Podcasts (Right Now)

For a FT RunGeek like me, I love all things running. I am guessing if you are reading this newsletter, you are in the same boat. I know many listen to podcasts while they run as it helps keep their mind occupied, I love listening to music as I like to work out my own […]

Sustainability and Environmental Initiatives

A core part of our mission has been to be good environmental stewards. As we get to race is some of the most beautiful locations Rhode Island has to offer, we want to do our part in minimizing our footprint not just at these locations, but in our greater global use. To that end, we […]

November – A Time of Thanks

November is a time for reflection and thanks for us.  Not only is it the end of our racing season, but we formed the company 5 years ago in November so it is our Anniversary as well!  (You can learn more about us at this link.) We are always so incredibly grateful at the end […]

Ready to Launch

As I have said before – “running” a road race requires the same amount of pre-race prep, as does actually running the race.  We spend our off-season doing the unglamorous work of planning our race strategies, making tweaks to what went wrong last year and learning to improve and grow for this year.

2016 Providence Marathon

I don’t think words can express how grateful and humbled we are after this weekend’s events.  For those that have been following along – this race has been a challenge. Every year it is a challenge as it is a logistical nightmare running 3000 people through a downtown City using 3 courses and 4 municipalities. […]

Reduce, reuse, recycle

Part of Rhode Races & Events core mission is to minimize our races impact on the environment.   When we started this company, this was a goal of ours from the onset.  We recognize how much trash and waste is produced at a race and we spent a great deal of time in the off […]

Narragansett Fall Half Marathon

In the past 6 weeks, I have spent 3 of them on our race courses and the other two on my sons’ cross country courses.  On the 6th one – what do I do? Test my own legs with a half marathon! I haven’t raced a half in 2-3 years, I haven’t even run longer […]
