Over the past few years the Independence Rhode Race has featured both good and bad weather for running. This year, you can expect it to feel like early July with warm/muggy conditions on Saturday morning. All things considered, it will not be a bad morning at all for the half-marathon!

There may be a bit of patchy mist around early in the day as the temperature and dew point hover in the upper 60s. You’ll work up a quick sweat in conditions like these, so be sure to hydrate along the way. Clouds will break later in the morning, and it will get warm by 10 am.
