The Common Fence Point 5 Miler is a running tradition since 2004 here in the beautiful town of Portsmouth, Rhode Island. To date, it's raised nearly $45,000 for the Portsmouth High School Music Boosters. Each year we gather at the Common Fence Point Community Center and knock out a great 5 mile run in the summer sun. After the tough run we gather for a post-race party with a great raffle, a DJ and adult beverages! 


Race benefits the Portsmouth High School Music Boosters, and has proudly raised over $40,000 for them since its inception.
