2018 Race the State postponed to 2019
To all of our supporters and competitors,
Due to a number of circumstances, we regrettably have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2018 edition of Race the State.
After three successful editions of Race the State, we have been searching for ways to improve the competitor experience, increase the number of commercial partnerships and grow the overall number of entrants. We ultimately have taken the hard decision to postpone this year’s race while we continue to work on these areas so that we can run a financially sustainable event that also provides a top-level experience for our competitors.
With high demand for the race, organizes share in the disappointment of the postponement, but are determined to work towards the 2019 edition of this uniquely Rhode Island race! While you are all on the treadmill or in your kayaks training for 2019, we will be burning up keyboards and cell phone plans to ensure that the race returns bigger and better.
