Providence Marathon

(5.2) Residents along the route have been receiving road closure notices which is appreciated. The Providence Marathon will consist of three different overlapping routes for the marathon, the half marathon, and the 5K — all of which start and end at the State House. Much of the full marathon will actually take runners over to East Providence and points south before looping back.

The half marathon starts downtown, heads down along the Providence River to India Point Park, before heading north on Blackstone Boulevard towards Pawtucket. The course then winds through Pawtucket before heading back down the Boulevard, down along the Providence River, and finishing back downtown at the Rhode Island State House and Providence Station.

The USATF says no baby strollers and no walkers. More details here.

Marathon starts 7:30am, Sunday, May 2, State House, (directions)
