Who We Are

Community Focused Event Management

Community Focused Event Management

Gray Matter Marketing was established in 2012 and has produced hundreds of lifestyle events and road races across New England; ranging from 5k’s to marathons and beer festivals.

We are a small team dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle through charitably focused events that respect and showcase the beautiful communities across New England that we are so fortunate to call host cities — in particular our home, Aquidneck Island.
