Thank you for participating in Delaware’s largest running festival. Despite warm temperatures, cloud cover and mist in the early morning helped to keep the weather in check. And while it was generally not a day for PRs, the PR Bell got quite a workout. Congratulations to our returning champion, Titus Rotich of Kenya, who was our overall marathon winner in 2:24:25 and Karen Smith who ran 3:08:51 to capture our female marathon title. In the half marathon, Youssef Rochdi of Morocco (now living in NJ) set a new male half marathon event record with a 1:09:27 to collect a $500 bonus and Heather Chapman who ran 1:30:07. The overall winning relay team was Fusion who ran a 2:38:20. Overall, 282 of our infamous gender specific bobble head runner awards were given out along with over $7000 in prize money.
