Certified 5K Rhody Run Course

Established in 2014, Rhody’s 5K Run makes nearly a complete loop around the campus of the University of Rhode Island. The course starts at the Quadrangle and directs participants to run east on Ranger Road toward Upper College Road, then south toward Campus Avenue and eventually ends back at the Quadrangle on Davis Road. The route is USATF certified (Certificate #RI 14002RN – Effective 2/25/14-12/31/2024). Precise mile markers are indicated on campus by granite posts.
