The Independence Rhode Race will be held on Saturday, June 24, 2023. In partnership with the Bristol Fourth of July Committee, the half marathon will follow the beautiful downtown streets of America’s quintessential community when it is decked out in its finest - during the Oldest 4th of July Celebration in America. The course includes incredible historic homes, a town common and the America’s Cup Museum before heading out along the scenic coastline, through Roger Williams University, following the parade route, and finishing along the water at Independence Park.
New in 2023 - not only will we be running the course in REVERSE from our 2022 year, but we are also adding a 2 person RELAY option! Please visit the relay event to learn more.
