Transportation from the downtown race hotels to Packet Pickup on Saturday, May 12, 2012 may be available by using DARTs City of Wilmington Circuit Route #32 Wilmington Trolley. This public bus ($1.15 exact change required) can be picked up at Rodney Square, a few blocks from our downtown host hotels. This bus line runs from Rodney Square to the Wilmington Riverfront. Rodney Square is located at 10th and Market Streets (across from the Hotel DuPont and the Wilmington Public Library) in the heart of downtown Wilmington.
On race day, only limited transportation from the Christiana Care Transportation Department will be available and it is strongly suggested everyone drive to the race START. There is plenty of parking in the Riverfront area and only limited race provided transportation will be available on race day. If at all possible, please offer your fellow runner a shared ride to the START.
