The FarmCoast 5K Run & Walk took place on April 1, 2023, at 9:00 a.m. and it was our best year so far!

The course started in Tiverton Four Corners and headed out along Puncatest Nest Road past Nonquit Pond and up towards Seapowet Ave. The midway point was at the Seapowet bridge and then turned around for the back half of the racecourse.


The weather was a bit rainy, but 150 participants showed up to walk or run! We had 235 registrants! Over 40 more than last year's race! We even had a participant come from New Jersey who is trying to run a 5k in each state and our race was her RI 5k.
