Newport, Rhode Island

Newport, Rhode Island

The Amica Marathon, UnitedHealthcare Half Marathon and 5k all take advantage of Newport and Middletown, Rhode Island's rich history and beautiful oceanside scenery. There is plenty to keep runners and their whole families busy all race weekend!

Through the years Newport has made a name for itself in a variety of manners, first as a colony founded on religious freedom, later as the summer playground for the American socialite families with names like Astor and Vanderbilt, as a key location for the United States Navy and then as the yachting capital of the world.

Home to spectacular coastal scenery, awe-inspiring architecture, a thriving waterfront downtown and welcoming hospitality, Newport, Rhode Island is considered by many to be a shining gem in the coastal crown of New England. From weekend getaways spent touring the famed Gilded Age mansions that once were the summer playground for socialite families with names like Astor and Vanderbilt to afternoons of wine tasting through Newport's three scenic vineyards, the options for interesting activities, distinctive stories, and enticing photo opportunities are countless!
