The Newport Marathon and Half-Marathon share the first 13.1 miles of a scenic tour through The City by The Sea. The course winds along the south shore of Newport Harbor before heading into Fort Adams State Park. Then runners work their way towards Ocean Drive with panoramic views of the Atlantic and New England coastline. The Half-Marathon participants are awarded their finisher’s medal here and the Marathon runners continue on towards Middletown and Second Beach.

The back half of the Marathon course leads runners out to the southeast point of Aquidneck Island, along Second Beach and into the Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge. The final two miles take runners back on Tuckerman Avenue through the Easton Point neighborhood before a celebratory turn into the Easton’s Beach finish area to cap a 26.2 mile USATF-certified course!
