The historic waterfront city of Providence is the capital of Rhode Island and the third largest city in New England. With its setting at the head of the Narragansett Bay, historic neighborhoods and parks, there are plenty of great options for running in Providence and Newport.
The signature run in Providence is the East Bay bike trail, which runs for 14 miles along the water to Bristol. For history and architecture, enjoy our route in the College Hill neighborhood. The Waterplace Park amphitheater and river-walks line the river’s banks through the downtown area. And we love the classically designed Roger Williams Park for a run any day.
We’ve also mapped out 30+ fabulous routes in Rhode Island’s prettiest coastal spots, including Newport, Narragansett, Westerly, Watch Hill, and Block Island — plus into neighboring coastal Connecticut.More Rhode Island Coastal Routes
