Runner Amenities

We are excited to announce that all race premiums for the 2017 Delaware Marathon Running Festival will be performance race shirts provided by Under Armour.

While we know that most runners don’t do an event to earn the shirt, a quality premium is a huge plus that runners will proudly wear as a badge of honor. We are fortunate to be able to leverage our relationship with Under Armour and offer the best race shirts in the industry to all Delaware Marathon Running Festival participants.

The marathon and half marathon shirts will be long sleeve, while the relay and 5K premiums will be short sleeve.Race shirt designs and colors will be unveiled soon.
