The South County 4th Season Race Series is a sequence of offroad trail running races held throughout the winter months here in southern Rhode Island. They aim to provide safe and enjoyable competitions while also raising awareness of the local recreational resources, charities, and small businesses that make the towns of South County such rich communities.
Points will be earned throughout the series towards overall individual, team, and age group championships. Special awards will be presented to those champions at the end of the series.
Each race also offers awards and raffle prizes to participants of that event.
All of the races also feature food drives for local food banks. Specifics can be found on each race page.
2014 Race Series
Yes, the series will run again this winter! I'm still hammering out dates…much busier this winter than last! Here are the latest suggested dates: (registration is open for first two)
Saturday April 5 : Big River Half Marathon
I'm doing my best to work around tides, blizzards, vacations, and other races...
New this year, I will be coordinating with the Westerly Track & Athletic Club and A Better Pace to offer the Rhode Island Triple Crown of Trail Racing: three races spread around the calendar to determine the king and queen of Ocean State trail running. First up is the Lil Rhody Runaround, a classic 8-miler at Burlingame State Park on Nov 17th, 2013. The second race will be the rugged Big River Half Marathon in the spring of 2014. The final challenge will be the 10-mile Run with the Beavers in Chepachet, RI next summer. Stay tuned!

The series will be on again this winter. Races will be posted here, Ultrasignup, Coolrunning, and Facebook. Note: I've tentatively listed races on Sunday's. I'd like to alternate Sat/Sun to accommodate racers' schedules, but I'm much busier this year and having the whole day before the race to make sure courses are prepared is pretty helpful for me.
