2019 Marathon Course

The 2019 Delaware Marathon will include a significant route update!  The marathon course will continue to run through some of the most scenic parts of downtown Wilmington but the changes will unify the full, half and team relay courses so everyone uses the same routes for the first 13 miles.   The 2nd half of the full marathon course will run along the newly completed Jack Markell Trail to New Castle Elementary School and back.  The trail will offer some amazing scenery and will be stocked with 3 water stops and port-a-pots where access permits.

WATER STATIONS

The course will consist of 14 water stops including 2 that you will pass in each in each direction on the Markell Trail and one at the turnaround at New Castle Elementary School.  Due to limited access points on the trail, we will offer full bottles of water at the stop at Mile 14.5, just at the mouth of the trail entrance.  This will allow marathon runners to carry a full bottle to supplement their hydration while on the trail.  Feel free to bring your own hydration system (such as a camelbak) if you prefer or to refill your bottle at the other water stations along the trail.

Each water station will also offer port-a-pots for runner use.  On the trail, where you will pass them in each direction we will offer additional units to alleviate congestion.
