Runner Tracking

Register online for the FREE Delaware Running Festival runner tracking services, beginning Monday, April 23. Use this helpful information to track your favorite runners, and to reunite with loved ones after the race. The message will provide the runner’s time, pace and expected finish time.

(NOTE If you registered after 4/20, you may not be able to sign up for tracking until later in the week when data is uploaded.  Check back later for updates.)

You will be able to receive tracking messages on your mobile phone via text messaging, have an email sent to your inbox, or have posts placed on your facebook or twitter accounts.  You can also follow athletes live on the map and view live race leaderboards.

Alerts are triggered when each runner’s individual timing chip crosses a timing mat that is part of the runner tracking system. By tracking a runner, you will receive the following messages:

Full Marathon: 5 Mile, 13.1 Mile, 18 Mile, Finish
Half Marathon: 5 Mile, Finish
Relay: Lap 1, Lap 2, Lap3, Finish
5K: Finish
