Get Gored for Good: April 30th

Grab the bull by the horns! Sign up for Get Gored for Good, an annual fundraiser and festival on Sunday, April 30th to benefit Amos House. Unlike typical races, this one is based on the world famous Pamplona Running of The Bulls. After registration and a warm up, you’ll navigate your way through downtown Providence with “rollerbulls” from the Providence Roller Derby League dashing after you, wearing horns and wielding red paint brushes!

Participants have two fun options: a full 5K (starting at 10 AM) and a shorter, family friendly 1.5 mile route with obstacles (starting at 11 AM). Run or walk either one, and then celebrate with your friends at an outdoor afterparty in Burnside Park featuring local food, drinks, games, and live music.

Through April 26th, you can register online. On-site registration will also be available outside the Rhode Island Convention Center. Find more details here.
