To Get to the Race from the Hotel: Go left out of motel on Post Road (US1) for about 2 miles until you cross Hwy 117. Turn left on Hwy 117 and go through the middle of Warwick. After only a few blocks, you will go under a railroad track. Just after you emerge from under the tracks, you will see a fork in the road, take the right hand for (the main road goes slightly to the left), this is Long Street but I don't think there is a sign. Stay on this street all the way to the park (2 miles). There is a jog and the street changes names but just keep going. Go to the end of the park by the water. You will have to make a left just before the dog park.
