LINCOLN, RI – The Amica Marathon, with its scenic and historic course in Newport, RI, has been rated as the fourth best overall marathon in the country, according to a survey conducted by Runner's World Magazine.
Thousands of readers participated in the Runner's World survey, which focused on many aspects of marathon racing that are important to runners. The participants weighed all the details and assessed more than 315 different marathons. The Amica Marathon's fourth place ranking placed it among some of the most prestigious marathons in the country, including the famed Boston Marathon.
"We're thrilled that the Amica Marathon ranked so high in the Runner's World survey," said Julie Montalbano, manager of the sponsorship team at Amica Insurance, the title sponsor of the Amica Marathon. "Amica has worked hard to make this marathon a world-class event. We want to do everything we can to attract top runners and to show off the beauty of Newport in the fall."
The 2010 Amica Marathon, which is a Boston Marathon qualifier, will be held on Sunday, Oct. 17. The event includes a marathon, the UnitedHealthcare Half Marathon and a team-relay competition.
