Race Description

About this Event This family, fun community event will bring together people of our community and veterans who have served our nation. You get two races for the price of one!! The 5k through historic Wickford Village and a .152k fun run will allow people of all ages and abilities to complete. Both runs will be conducted like a typical road race, complete with bib numbers, start/finish line, timing, and water stations. All race participants will be given a T-shirt with a unique, specially designed race logo, a race medal, and a ‘goodie’ bag with assorted swag.
Proceeds Proceeds from this event will go to Gateway to Independence, a VA-supported veteran transitional housing program for homeless individuals due to PTSD, substance abuse, depression, and other factors, serving over an average of 100 individuals annually. Proceeds will also benefit our Holiday Veteran in need program providing food and clothing for disadvantaged local veterans.

Established in 1709, Wickford Village provides picturesque waterfront streets with one-of-a-kind shops featuring jewelry, housewares, clothing, and more.
