Join fellow winos and runners as we train for a yearly Spring and Fall Marathon while we raise funds for children’s charities! In the 2013 season we ran locally on May 12th in the Delaware Marathon Running Festival and now we’re headed South for the December 7th Rehoboth Beach Seashore Marathon! This year the determined charity who is benefitting from our grueling training is Chester County Futures. The 2013 FranksWine.com Marathon Team of 10 runners has a goal to raise $10,026! The Spring Marathon for 2014 will once again be on home turf: The Delaware Marathon Running Festival on May 11th where you’ll find a Champagne Tent at the Finish Line sponsored by Wilmington’s FranksWine on North Union Street! The benefitting charity for 2014 and the fall race have not yet been determined, but will likely be a destination Marathon.
