The 2013 Cox Sports Marathon is one of the fastest growing races in the Northeast. As a relatively flat and fast course, it has become a favorite local qualifying race for the Boston Marathon.
The course is a nice mix of historic urban and rural neighborhoods as the race starts in Downtown Providence and heads south towards the East Bay and Barrington, Rhode Island. The tree lined East Bay Bike path provides plenty of shade and scenic views of the Providence river and skyline.
The course is USATF certified and is a 2014 Boston Marathon Qualifier.
The Cox Providence Rhode Races is pleased to announce it will add a $5,000 prize purse in 2013. The top three male and female finishers in the 2013 Cox Sports Marathon will receive a cash prize. Results are based on gun time.
The 2013 Cox Sports Marathon will start at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 12.
