Minor Course Changes Announced Due to Construction

MINOR COURSE CHANGES ANNOUNCED DUE TO CONSTRUCTION

IMPORTANT NOTE: As announced earlier this week, the full marathon and half marathon courses will have a few minor changes this year due to construction along the Riverfront passed the St. Francis Healthcare building. Both courses have been re-certified.

The turn-by-turn directions are attached below. Changes are minor with no drastic alterations to the route. We will pass many of the same areas and roads as in year’s past but know that certain mile markers may change slightly from previous years.   Please pay attention to route markings on race day.

Thank you.

Updates or Changes to your Delaware Running Festival Entry

Corrigan Sports is excited to announce that we have a new registration platform.  New registrations as well as management of previous registrations will now take place on our new RunSignUp registration page.

For most of you, there will not be much of a difference.  You will go to one of our event website, click on the REGISTER button and sign up for the race as you normally do.   You may notice some changes in the layout, but in the end, you will sign up and pay for your race entry like always.

If you have previously registered and want to make an edit to your entry (upgrade, downgrade, defer, change your address, change your shirt size, etc.) You will need to CLAIM YOUR ENTRY before having access to make these edits.   (NOTE-  If you registered after Feb 15, 2018, you will already have access to your RACE MANAGEMENT settings and will be able to make these adjustments.)

The Run Sign Up platform does simplify some things for you in the future.  When you register next year or for other CSE events (or even others using RunSignUp) most of your contact information will be saved and pre-populate into the form, saving you from the key-strokes of re-entering this data again.

There are other benefits and conveniences that the RunSignUp platform provides for the registrants and for us as a race organizer.  You can look for additional features to be launched with the 2019 race openings.

THE DEADLINE TO MAKE CHANGES IS APRIL 20, 2018.

If you have any questions or concerns, or have trouble claiming or accessing your entry, please email [email protected] for the promptest response.
