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 Path which runs for 14 miles along the water to Bristol. To get a sense of Providence in foot, check out our Downtown Providence route. Another signature run is the classically designed Roger Williams Park. For history and architecture, enjoy our routes in the College Hill neighborhood, Blackstone Boulevard, and the Pleasant Valley neighborhood. In East Providence/Pawtucket, the Ten Mile River Greenway is a pleasant path along the water. Other good multi-use trails are the Woonasquatucket River Greenway and the Washington Secondary Bike Path.
