South County 4th Season Race Series Tentative Dates Announced

So,  you think you will be putting you racing shoes away when the New England winter hits full strength…think again! The South County 4th Season Race Series has been announce with tentative dates. Why tentative? Well, the New England winter has a big say on whether the races will take part when scheduled,  or even the format of the race…sometimes the trails races become snow-shoe races!

  • Jan 7 (Sat) – Resolution 5k Beach & Trail Race
  • Feb 4 (Sat) – Old Mountain 5k Trail Race
  • March 11 (Sat) – Belleville Pond 10k Trail Race
  • April 1 (Sat) – Brrr-lingame 5 & 10 Mile Trail Races
  • April 29 (Sat) – Big River Half Marathon and 10k Trail Races

These races are low-key and an incredible amount of fun, and I write that from experience.

The race series raises money for the Jonnycake Center of Peace Dale,  and in addition to your entry fee (which is normally $10) your entry also requires at least two of the following donation items per entrant on race day:

  • Cereal
  • Tuna/Other canned meats
  • Peanut butter and Jelly
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Spaghetti and Sauce
  • Soups, Stews and Chili
  • Canned Vegetables & Fruits
  • 100% Fruit Juice (cans, boxes, bottles)
  • Shampoo, toothpaste, or toothbrushes
  • Diapers, Detergent, or Deodorant
  • Toilet paper or paper towels
Don’t expect a tee-shirt or any race bling buy do expect a fantastic racing experience  in some of Rhode island’s most beautiful spots,  kicking of with a 5K on Scarborough Beach…now how cool is that!
