3rd Annual Event! - Run Delaware's Most Scenic Certified Half-Marathon!

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2017

Come out and join us on Delaware’s NEWEST USATF Certified Half-Marathon Course along the fully-paved Michael N. Castle C&D Canal Trail. This event starts and finishes at the Biddle Point trail head; strategically located only a short drive from Baltimore, Philadelphia, Wilmington, and Southeastern Pennsylvania. The trail head is a modern facility with restrooms, picnic tables, and indescribable views of the historic C&D Canal.  All runner parking will be across the street at the Gunning-Bedford Middle School, and free shuttle buses / bag check will be provided.

You'll begin the first 6 miles of your run on a flat and fast course that runs only a few feet from the river before quickly climbing from the canal base and passing through Summit North Marina. There, you will pass through a modern marina and restaurant before proceeding about 1/2 mile to the turn-around point. A quick downhill descent and you are back on the flat portion of the trail for what is guaranteed to be a P.R. Finish! All participants will be professionally chip-timed using the RaceResult Timing System by Blue Cheetah Sports Timing, LLC.

Along the route, you will pass by historic bridges, working tugs and freighters from all around the world, an abundance of wildlife, and the sheer beauty of this man-made miracle.

Each half-marathon finisher will earn a 3.5" CUSTOM FINISHER'S MEDAL, a technical-blend commemorative t shirt, and other great swag from our sponsors. Food and light refreshments will be provided at the start and finish, and ample water stops will be provided along the course for your comfort.  In addition to the Start/Finish areas, portable restrooms are also located just prior to the half-way point turn-around.

 

*All finishers will receive a medal. Those wishing to purchase an additional medal for a friend or family member can do so during the registration process. 

All net proceeds go to benefit the National PTSD Foundation; an IRS certified 501c3 public charity non-profit organization that serves to raise awareness and assist America's first responders and first responder families suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
