Blackstone Blvd 5k Fun Run

  • Lippitt Memorial Park Blackstone Blvd Providence, RI United States (map)

4 down, 2 to go!

Tell your friends and family to come on out and join us Wednesday August 27th for a free 5k up and down Blackstone Blvd! We're billing it as a race/fun run we will be timing your run and all levels are invited.  

The race/run begins at 630pm and we will be gathering at Lippitt Memorial Park at the Hope St. end of Blackstone Blvd.  For those who would like a short warmup/cooldown feel free to meet us at Rhode Runner as we will jog up to the Blvd at 600pm. The course will be out and back down the gravel path, traffic will not be closed so use caution.  Please keep an eye on the clock when you cross the finish line, we will do our best to record times but cannot make any promises!  

We will be raffling off a pair of New Balance Shoes, Fuelbelt prizes and Believe I Am gear. All Raffle Ticket proceeds will be donated to the Rhode Island Food Bank.  You can purchase raffle tickets or receive one ticket per non-perishable food item you bring.
