Bobby Doyle Summer Classic

5 Mile / 5K Run or Walk

Sunday, July 26th to Sunday, August 9th, 2020 | ANYWHERE

Race Highlights

As a result of Covid-19, the 13th Annual Bobby Doyle Summer Classic will be a historic virtual race.

Run or walk  5K or 5 miles on a course that you choose between Sunday, July 26th and Sunday, August 9th for only $10.


First 350 registered runners / walkers will receive a custom Bobby Doyle race medal.


ALL registered runners / walkers will receive a technical T-shirt.


Awarded to male and female high school students.


Automatic raffle entry for multiple prizes for all runners.

Team Awards

All boys and girls high school 5k cross country teams consisting of 5 or more team members are eligible to compete for a team award based on divisions set up by school enrollment.

The number of divisions that are created will depend on the number of teams entered. Our hope is to have at least three divisions of 10 schools for both boys and girls. Team scoring will be based on the lowest five member team score after eliminating individuals. In the case of ties, the team with the best sixth place finisher will break the tie. The Championship Team in each division will receive a TEAM PACK of 15 TEAM TECH SHIRTS for their school.

Special Instructions for the Virtual Race

This year, we must run at home to stay safe! As a result we must make some modifications to how we determine results and distribute prizes.
We hope to see you back in beautiful Narragansett, RI next year so we can race together along the scenic Rhode Island coast.
