The fog lifted, the rain held off and the cloud cover kept things cool, making for perfect running conditions for the 2014 Narrow River Road Race on Saturday, May 10. More than 250 runners and walkers enjoyed this annual NRPA event that features a 10K Run, 5K Run and 5K Walk along Narrow River, one of the most beautiful courses in Southern New England.
