Could be Delaware’s most scenic half marathon:
The marathon course consists of two half marathon loops. Both 13.1 mile loops take you from the Wilmington Riverfront through beautiful Brandywine Park, along Kentmere and Bancroft Parkways, and through the 40 Acres, Wawaset Park and Little Italy neighborhoods of Wilmington before returning via the Wilmington park system and past Rodney Square.
The four person relay course consists of four loops of 6.55 miles each starting at the Riverfront, and running on the marathon / half marathon course, before turning around on Bancroft Parkway, just before Shallcross Avenue (new).
The eight person relay course consists of eight loops of 3.275 miles each starting at the Riverfront and running on the marathon / half marathon course before turning around at the end of the N. Market Street bridge.
