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 3900 runners competed in 2009, 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

So my Dad, Eugene McCormack and I walked the race on Friday.We were slow, for sure, but did finish. Dad's 80th birthday is Sunday Aug 3rd.2014 and this is quite an accomplishment for him.
Eugene, we apologize for you not being listed. We hope that this short article will let all know that you need to be recognized for what truly demonstrates your strength of character and determination. On behalf of the Narragansett Lions Club, Happy Birthday and congratulations.
