Runner Amenities

All Marathon & Half Marathon Runners Will Receive

With the help of Expert Brand Apparel, we will provide a gender specific technical running shirt (heather green – men and heather blue – women) with our multi color event logo to celebrate our lucky Thirteenth Anniversary.  Additionally, all marathon and half marathon runners will receive a Headsweats running hat (new color for 2016) from Discover Bank and a special spinner finisher’s medal from Crown Trophy. 

All Participants Will Receive

In addition to the gender specific Technical Shirt, all runners will receive customized race bibs, access to online digital photos, and a goodie bag loaded with SWAG (stuff we all get)!  This year’s swag will include a Delaware Marathon™ Race Program and our very collectible Delaware Marathon™ Pint Glass from NKS Distributors.

The Delaware Marathon™ Running Festival prides itself on the quality and variety of its post-race all-American barbecue and is sincerely grateful to 2 Fat Guys Catering and the many vendors and suppliers who donate to Delaware’s premier running event.  See the Event Information – Hospitality page for details.
