Approximately 3900 runners, walkers and wheelchair entrants compete on a scenic and certified 10-mile course through historic Narragansett, ending at "The Towers" on the ocean (immediately adjacent to Seafood Festival -see below). Runners receive official Blessing of the Fleet T-Shirts as well as prizes.
Generally held on the last weekend in July each year, the event is "kicked off" with a scenic, 10-mile road race on Friday evening. The course, which winds its way through historic Narragansett, is officially sanctioned and listed as one of the top three races of its distance in New England. More than 3800 runners competed in 2014, hailing from all over New England, across the country and around the world. The race's finish line is by "The Towers" in Narragansett, next to the Atlantic Ocean and Veterans Memorial Park, site of the Blessing of the Fleet Seafood Festival
