Summer Nights 5K Course

Sunset, Ocean-Side Course in Coastal Rhode Island

The Narragansett Summer Nights 5k course runs throughout the beautiful, ocean-front property of Mount Hope Farm, consisting of mostly pavement, some grass and a touch of wooded trail. 

The runners will start out heading east, eventually bearing right towards Church Cove, and looping back towards the starting line. Here runners will encounter the only grass and dirt-portions of the course, with about 1/4 mile of grassy field and about 100 yards of wooded path as they reconnect with the main path and then head eastward again towards Mt. Hope Point. 

As runners reach Mount Hope Point they’ll enjoy views of Seal Island, Church Cove and The Mount Hope Bridge. Runners will hit a turn-a-round after passing the Cove Cabin, and begin to make the return trip back to the barn, with a slight, sneaky uphill into the finish. The course finishes under the lights of the Mt. Hope Farm barn, just in time for the after-party.

Other Course Considerations


The course has one “double pass” water-station that you’ll pass at mile 1.4 (as you head out to Mt. Hope Point) and again as you head back at mile 2.9, just before ascending the final climb into the finish.


The average high temperature on race day is 77 degrees F.

The average low temperature on race day is 61 degrees F. 

Please dress/prepare accordingly. 

Safety Concerns: 

Since this course is 100% closed, we do not mind headphones. We ask that you simply keep the volume low enough to hear instructions from our race crew. Strollers are NOT allowed due to the varying terrain of the course. 

First Aid: 

If you need medical attention, there will be an EMT at the finish line monitoring all finishing runners. If you find yourself in trouble on course, please notify our course staff/volunteers and we’ll get someone out to you.
