SUPER 5K, Narragansett, February 5th, 2012.

Starts at 10:30am at the Village Inn Hotel, Narragansett, Rhode Island.

$25 for adults and $12 for youth (18 and under).

T-Shirts: T-shirts to first 300 registrants.

Awards: First/second/third place man and woman: $100/$50/$25 cash. Top three male/female in the following age categories: 13 and under, 14-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+. No duplicate awards.

The Course: USATF certified. Fast out and back course along the Narragansett sea wall. Very scenic.


A traditional cross-country style scoring system will be used, which uses place instead of time. Only runners on eligible teams will be counted in the scoring. To qualify as eligible, male teams must have at least five (5) members and female teams must have at least three (3) members.

First eligible-team finisher scores one point; second finisher, two points; third finisher, three points, and so on. On male teams, the top five (5) finishers score. On female teams the top three (3) finishers score. The score is determined by totaling the points of the scoring runners, thus the team with the lower point total is the winner. Although the non-scoring eligible-team runners do not score points, their places, if better than those of any of the opposing eligible-team runners, may serve to increase the team score of the opponents.

Non-team runners and runners on non-eligible teams do not affect the scoring.

Tie Breaker 1: Total time of scoring runners.
Tie Breaker 2: Time of first team finisher.

Post-registered runners may participate in team competition. A representative from each team will provide the race director with a team roster during the registration period. Please find roster forms at the registration table. No adjustments can be made after the registration period. Any questions should be addressed to the race director, and the race director has authority on all matters pertaining to the team competition.

Nooseneck 18K – IMPORTANT logistics update

This is an IMPORTANT  update to an earlier post on this site.

From Race Director Mike Tamarro…

#1) On December 12, 2011, the Big River Inn reopened as “NUTZ on
Nooseneck.” The pre- and post-race happenings will be at NUTZ–number
pickup, post-race party. Do not go to Dan’s or Timberstones. Spread
the word. NUTZ  is pretty much the old
Big River Inn, located at

809 Nooseneck Hill Rd

West Greenwich, RI 02817

but with a much better beer selection. Race will start
at 1:15pm on December 26th  (fifteen minutes later than scheduled) in order to accommodate
the confused.

#2) Re-gift Raffle: Re-wrap your least-wanted Christmas gift and enter
it into the raffle. Everyone who brings a gift gets a ticket and walks
away with someone else’s unwanted gift. The ensuing swap meet should be
fun to watch.
