Gaspee Days partners with Rhode Races

Bristol, Rhode Island, January 29, 2022 – Rhode Races would like to announce their partnership with the Gaspee Day 5k foot race. Both Rhode Races and Gaspee want to create the everlasting memory of starting the race with excitement and finishing with accomplishment and pride.

The Gaspee Day 5k entails the excitement of running before a pre-assembled cheering crowd in anticipation of the Annual Gaspee Days Parade! Over 1,600 runners each year flock to participate in this exciting event along the Parkway’s famed red, white, and blue road stripe. All proceeds support funding the annual Gaspee Days Parade. Dedicated to the loving memory of Allan & Edna Brown.

“Rhode Races is honored and humbled to be a part of this historic running event.  The Gaspee Days is one of the oldest road races in Rhode Island and we are excited to bring our passion for executing great events to this Summer classic,” says Susan Rancourt – Co-Owner/CFO/CRO at Rhode Races & Events Inc.

​​”The Gaspee Days Committee is excited for the return of the 5K for 2022. The committee realized for the 5K to return our organization would need help. We found support with a Rhode Island-based company Rhode Races and Events. We look forward to planning the Gaspee Days 5K together” says Erin Flynn – Publicity Chair at Gaspee Day Committee
