The first of three important pre-race emails was sent to all runners. If you did not receive it, please check your SPAM and ensure we have your email on file.

Want to track your progress on the course?  NOVA Timing Systems will be providing live results messaging & online tracking for the 11th Annual Christiana Care Health System Delaware Marathon Running Festival.  Participants, along with their family & friends, will be able to sign up to receive email and text message updates as well as post to their Facebook and Twitter accounts with split and finish line results.  Tracking sign up will open late on May 4th.  http://www.delawaremarathon.org/event-information/timing-scoring.  This feature will be available for the Marathon & Half Marathon only.  Also, look for the NOVA Timing display tent on race weekend.  Use their computers to look up your bib number or follow the Leader Board during the race.

Please plan to bring your “used but not abused” athletic shoes to our Vendor Tent.  The More Foundation helps to adopt African families by providing them with ¼ acre of farm land, 100 trees, livestock, wells and irrigation systems AND every 150 shoes saves 12 acres of rainforest, due to sustainable farming!  Save acres of rainforest, irrigate 100s of village farms in Africa and help a family gain financial stability by donating your old running shoes!  For more information click More Foundation

Got 2 Many T’s? Of course you do!  The Delaware Ministry of Caring would love to relieve you of your surplus.  They give them to homeless Delawareans who visit their Samaritan Outreach Center for a shower and a change of clothes. Your extra tee shirt will go to someone truly in need.  So bring your extra tee shirts to the Delaware Marathon and deposit them in the “2 Many T’s” boxes.  Visit www.ministryofcaring.org or email betty@olmstead.net for more information.

Ken Shelton Photography  will be on site to take the official runner photos at the Delaware Marathon.  Please take a moment to pre-register your bib # and Ken will email you a link to your race photos when they are ready.  Your bib # is displayed on our website under 2014 Participant listings.  Click here for Ken Shelton Photography’s website.
