Sign Up for Your Free Race Photos

That’s right, this year everyone will get access to Free Race Photos!  Participants will have the ability to share all their race photos on Facebook and/or download them at no charge after the race. You can also purchase high resolution unbranded individual prints, race album packages or race branded products. Hi-res photos will be available by May 20.

We encourage you to opt in early and have your Free Race Photos post directly to your Facebook account once they go live after the race.  Those who opt in to post to Facebook will be entered into drawing to win one of 10 free entries into the 2018 Delaware Running Festival.



PHOTO NOTES: Be sure to wear your bib on the front to ensure the photographers capture your bib number in the photos and keep your race bib uncovered and in clear view. We recommend stopping your watch a few seconds after crossing the finish line so it may be possible to identify your photograph. Be sure to stop by the finisher’s photo station just after you cross the finish line to capture the moment!
