It is a relatively flat course, and race weekend also includes a half marathon. The Providence Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifier.

How to watch
The only way to catch the action of the Providence Marathon is to be a spectator in-person.
The course is a loop, sharing a similar start and finish line. It begins in Downtown Providence, and competitors will run toward the East Bay and Barrington, RI. The majority of the course runs alongside the Providence River and then doubles back, wrapping up at the Rhode Island State House.
A course map can be found on the marathon’s website.
