Run for COA

Join coa’s run teams in october

We need your support! This October, there are two opportunities for you to race for a cause: the Amica Newport Marathon on October 10 and the Citizens Pell Bridge Run on October 17. Whether or not you run, donate to our efforts to help us continue the work we do to protect and preserve the shorelines of our beautiful islands!

The Amica Newport Marathon and Half-Marathon is on Sunday, October 10.  As a charity partner, we receive 10 complimentary registrations to build our team. Contact Emily Conklin to claim your ticket to become an ambassador for COA at this event. Not a runner? Volunteer with us to keep the course clean and dunes safe from traffic!

On Sunday, October 17, the COA team will be taking on the 4 mile Citizens Pell Bridge Run. This annual event is the only chance runners & walkers have to cross the Pell Bridge and enjoy the sweeping views of the bay. Contact Emily Conklin for more information on how to get a complimentary registration for our team! We also need volunteers to help support runners at water stations along the route, and to help keep the course clean.

Registration proceeds from both events benefit our ongoing efforts to maintain a clean, healthy ocean that is accessible to all. We hope you’ll join us in running, volunteering, and donating for this year’s Amica Newport Marathon and Citizens Pell Bridge Run!
