A spectacular beach race featuring stunning views, the half marathon course runs along the ocean front streets of Misquamicut Beach and Watch Hill, RI. The Surftown Half Marathon, presented by Westerly Hospital, is fast and flat, a great destination race with live entertainment, pace teams and a well-marked route with timing clocks, fluid stations and lots of support.
The 2-person relay gives runners a chance to experience the beach party at the Surftown Half with a buddy! Relay participants exchange at the halfway mark.
The 5K race offers a 3.1 mile beach run to remember! The fast course runs through the Misquamicut beach community.
All participants earn a funky beach-themed finisher medal, a high quality short sleeve technical shirt and a post-race party by the beach. Enjoy sports massage, a variety of fresh food options and awards ceremony post-race.
Give Back: Please help give back to the community that has opened their streets for participants. Donations of nonperishable food will be collected on race day through the HMF Can drive to benefit Jonnycake Center of Westerly. Jonnycake Center provides food, clothing, educational and financial assistance to those in need in the Westerly-Chariho area.
