September is fast approaching with a large event here in Westerly, the Surftown Half Marathon and 5K.
The Hartford Marathon Foundation supports charities throughout the region at many of the race events they produce. They have rallied thousands of participants and volunteers to “run for good” and each year, charities associated with HMF events raise over $500,000 through thier runs.
Running along the ocean front streets of Misquamicut Beach, Watch Hill and Weekapaug, RI, the Surftown Half Marathon is a spectacular beach race featuring stunning ocean views! Fast and flat, the 13.1 mile half marathon is a great destination race with live entertainment on the course, pace teams and a well-marked route with timing clocks, fluid stations and support on the course. The Surftown Half Marathon is a favorite of many runners, up to 2,800 every year,
This is a large event and requires a substantial number of hams. Non hams are welcome also because they are a great help to the hams providing the communications.
