Cash awards of $400, $200, and $150 will be given to the top three overall Male and Female half marathon winners. Cash awards of $100 will also be given to the top Male and Female half marathon Masters winners. Plus Time Bonus awards are potentially available (see below).

A $500 bonus will be paid if you can set a Delaware Half Marathon event record. Our Delaware Half Marathon course records are currently 1:09:27 by Youssef Rochdi of (Morrocco) Rockaway, NJ (2015 Delaware Half Marathon) and 1:23:38 by Morgan Morrow of Bear, DE (2014 Delaware Half Marathon).

This bonus will be doubled to $1,000 if you can set the fastest half marathon times ever run on Delaware soil. The fastest half marathon times ever run on Delaware soil are 1:04:54, by Craig Holm at the 1982 Caesar Rodney Half Marathon and 1:16:55, by Heidi Peoples from Scranton, Pa. at the 2010 Caesar Rodney Half Marathon.
