The 10k is a mostly flat course with very minimal incline/decline. The only major hills are a 50 yard incline as runners approach the halfway mark and another 50 yard incline as runners approach the finish line.
Course Description, Maps and Flyover
The 10k of the Narragansett Summer Running Festival offers a fantastic tour of the beautiful Stonehill College campus. The course utilizes the paved roads, dirt roads, walkways and bridges to make for a weaving course through Stonehill's grounds.
There are two short climbs in the 10k, one at the halfway point and flat and fast.
For your own safety we ask that you do NOT wear headphones in the race! We have live music at the finish, so save the jammin’ until the end!
Strollers are allowed in the 10k race.
Not planning on setting any speed records? Take your time! Our 10k course is open until 9:15 AM. You just worry about finishing, and we'll keep the beer cold!
The average high temperature on race day is 82 degrees F.
The average low temperature on race day is 66 degrees F.
That being said, this is a SUMMER running festival and obviously heat can play a major role. Plan your race accordingly, and take careful note of our aid station layout. We do highly suggest carrying some sort of hydration with you to make for a more safe and successful day!
We will have a sprinkler running on the course to keep you cool as you run your race! You will pass this sprinkler two times on your 10k run. You will be able to run around it or through it, depending on your preference.
If you need medical attention on a race course, the aid stations will be able to communicate with our mobile medical command unit as well as both ambulances that we’ll have on site. There will be a medical tent at the finish for anyone who needs to be attended to, and medical staff monitoring the finish line area.
The 10k features the "Chapel Aid Station" (with water and Gatorade) and the
"Donahue Hill Aid Station", (featuring water only) giving runners access to aid
roughly 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 of the way through the course.
