Benson Town Beach 7 Corn Neck Rd, New Shoreham, RI 02807 First organized in 1975, the Run Around the Block 15K Road Race is one of the oldest races in Rhode Island as well as New England. The timed race is a hilly, winding run along mostly paved roads with a stretch of dirt road that appears twice during the route. It begins at Isaac's Corner near Fresh Pond and ends at Fred Benson Town Beach Pavilion where there will be food, drinks and a refreshing dip in the ocean available as well as bathroom and shower facilities.
