The finale of the SC 4th Season Race Series! Big River features some of the best singletrack trail in Rhode Island, and at 13.1 miles, this course will include plenty of it. Note that the race starts and finishes a short jog (~400 yds) south of the parking area where New London Turnpike intersects Division Rd (at the green star on map). If the dirt lot is full, please park in the Park-n-Ride lot and carefully walk or run south to the start location. There will be two water stops along the half marathon course, roughly 1/3 and 2/3 of the way (yellow faucets on map). There are no stops for the 10k. Both races start together
Prizes for top overall, age group, and team winners (team scoring based on top three finish times). General prize raffle for all participants following awards.
Race #5 of 5 in the SC 4th Season Race Series. Series championship points will be awarded to top 6 overall places for each gender, top 3 places for each age group, and top 4 teams.
