This is my personal favorite racing event of the year which is held the day after Christmas at 1pm. You can run off your Christmas dinner and then salute your run with a beer in Tavern On Hill in West Greenwich with all of your new friends!
You may even set a new PR over the 18K distance!
Start/Finish Location: Tavern on the Hill (809 Nooseneck Hill Rd, West Greenwich, RI 02817)
Registration: No pre-registration. No registration fee. Suggest $10-20 donation to the raffle/prize fund. Number pick-up starts at 12:00pm.
Course: The course is professionally measured and the miles are marked precisely. The course winds through rural West Greenwich and Exeter. There will be one unmanned, bottled-water station at mile 5. Don’t litter.
Timing and Scoring: Results will be posted on coolrunning.com.
Prizes/Raffle: Donations to the raffle/prize fund will be distributed as follows: 20% to overall male winner, 20% to overall female winner, and 20% each to three cash raffle drawings. Must be present to win. All race participants are automatically entered into the cash raffle.
Re-Gift Raffle: Rewrap your worst holiday gift and donate it to the raffle. Take home someone else’s worst gift! Only those who donate gifts are entered into the re-gift raffle.
Post Race: Socialize after the race at Tavern on the Hill. Food and drink available for purchase.
Goodies: All runners get a Nooseneck 18K sticker.
