All Marathon & Half Marathon Runners Will Receive

Delaware Running Company and Saucony are helping us design a special technical running shirt (colors tbd) with our multi color event logo to celebrate our Twelfth Anniversary.  The shirt comes in both men’s and ladies sizes.  Crown Trophy will design a really nice finisher medal for all marathon finishers and half marathon finishers.  Also, customized race bibs will also be available for all marathon and half marathon runners.

All Participants Will Receive

All runners will receive a gender specific Technical Shirt and a goodie bag loaded with SWAG (stuff we all get)! This year’s swag will include an embroidered runner’s hat, a Delaware Marathon™ Race Program, a “Memo from a Delaware Marathoner” memo pad from Aztec Printing, and our very collectible Delaware Marathon™ Pint Glass from Michelob Ultra.

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