2020 Registration opens on September 4th!

Join us on Sunday, March 22, 2020 for the second annual Aquidneck 10K, presented by NPT HealthWorks and Fitzpatrick Team! Rhode Island’s newest road race will run alongside beach grass and sand dunes, around a wildlife refuge and bird sanctuary, showcasing the beauty of Aquidneck Island.

The Mission

A portion of all registration fees go directly to the Norman Bird Sanctuary.

Established in 1949, the Norman Bird Sanctuary’s mission is to maintain the land “for the propagation, preservation, and protection of birds, and where birds and bird life may be observed, studied, taught, and enjoyed by lovers of nature and by the public generally so interested in a spirit of humanity and mercy.”
