About this event

2021 Race Update

UPDATE: May 4, 2021

We’re thrilled to announce that the BankNewport 10 Miler has been formally approved and permitted for an in-person race on Sunday, June 6th!

Waitlist and New Registrations

As a result of the state relaxing outdoor event restrictions we are planning on increasing this year's BankNewport 10 Miler capacity to accommodate 750 additional runners.

These limited spots will be available for the 2021 BankNewport 10 Miler after permit approval for our updated capacity limit.

Runners can sign up for our waitlist now. All those on the wait list will have first right of registration between May 13-14th before general registration opens on May 15th.

2021 Race Protocols

This year’s event will no doubt look different from year’s past as we scale things back to meet all state guidelines and host a safe and responsible event with a strict capacity limit. Further event protocols will be detailed to all registered runners n the coming weeks. We thank you in advance for your continued patience and cooperation as we safely get back to racing.

Deferred 2020 Registrants

Registrants from the postponed 2020 BankNewport 10 Miler and New England 10 Miler Series are automatically registered for this year’s event. No further action is required for those individuals.

2020 Swag, in 2021

The pandemic forced the postponement of last year’s race long after the shirt and medal orders we already produced. So, while we’d love to be able to produce new 2021 swag for this year’s event, we are excited to finally be able to share last year’s great designs with all our runners at the finish line!

Cancellation Policy

While we’re optimistic that we’ll be able to host a safe, in-person race, if the event is cancelled due to Covid, all registrants will have the option of a race credit to next year’s event, or another race on the Gray Matter Marketing calendar. More information available here.

Race Credits

We are not able to offer refunds. However we do offer any registered runners the opportunity to request a race credit for your full value. Once issued, these Eventbrite Credits appear as a balance of your Eventbrite account. The credit balance can then be applied to the purchase price of a new ticket to any event on our calendar within two years of the day we issue the credit. Race credits may be requested up to 30 days before the event in which you are registered. Race credits will not be granted if a request is made less than 30 days prior to the event.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I get a refund?

We do not offer refunds. However we do offer Eventbrite Credits for other events on our calendar.

Can I defer my registration?

No, we do not roll over your registration automatically to the next year's event. However the credit that we issue can be used towards the purchase of that same event whenever registration re-opens for the following year's event.

Can I transfer my registration to another person?

No, we do not offer transfers. However, when you request and receive a race credit, you can use that credit to purchase a new ticket for another participant if you choose to do so.

How long is my Eventbrite Credit good for?

The balance of your registration is good for up to two years from the date it was issued, at which point it then expires.

When can I request an Eventbrite Credit?

All credit requests must be submitted to info@graymattermarketing.com no later than 30 days prior to the event.

Extreme Weather Policy

Our events are held rain or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. We do not schedule "rain dates". Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry fee when signing up.

Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
