Newport Night Run

A Race for Education.

Welcome to the inaugural Newport Night Run, a Race for Education. This event is Newport’s first and only nighttime race and will be a 5k held on Friday February 21st at 7 p.m. This event will be held as a fundraiser for the Newport Public Education Foundation and will replace the annual Mother’s Day Run that has been going on for 10 years. The NPEF and Gray Matter Marketing have combined forces to create this new race concept to produce a new road race experience in Newport. We are also excited to host this race during the Newport Winter Festival.
