RACE STATUS UPDATE

THE DELAWARE RUN FEST IS ON!

We have received confirmation that our permit for the Delaware Running Festival has been approved for June 12 & 13!  We are so excited to be able to offer a live race this year and we cannot wait to host you once again!

Our permit requires certain COVID mitigation steps.  More details will be provided in the Runner Handbook to be released at a later date but in general, runners will be required to:

  • Wear a mask and remain socially distanced in all gathering areas such as at packet pickup, before crossing the start line or after crossing the finish line.
  • The marathon, half-marathon and team relay race start time has been moved to 6:30am to allow for our wave start. Individual start times will be based on the number of participants and their pace. These will be released race week.  Our plan is to get as many runners across the line as quickly as possible while keeping within our permitted levels.
  • The 5K and kids fun run will take place on Saturday evening. We are awaiting final approval of our start time but have targeted 5pm in our proposal.  A formal announcement should be expected in the coming days.
  • Masks ARE NOT required to be worn on the course. We do ask that you carry one and use them at the water refill stations and if you encounter a large group of runners for an extended period. (Passing a group without a mask is fine.)
  • Runners will carry their own water bottle during the race. We will offer refill stations (water only) along the route with touchless spouts.
  • Dogfish Head Brewery will be on site and will provide each finisher with one cold beer to celebrate your accomplishment. (Must be 21 or over and show your ID).
  • Spectators are currently not permitted on the Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park premises. However, there are 26 miles on the route where fans can socially distance and cheer their loved ones.  We are hopeful that this policy can be updated prior to race day.

In addition, the following policies will be implemented:

  • Hand sanitizer and disinfectant will be strategically placed in and around the event facilities.
  • Bottled water and bottled Gatorade along with limited pre-packaged snacks will be distributed post-race.
  • Limited post-race festivities with no awards ceremony or live band.

Stay tuned for more specific details on procedures and policies.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact [email protected]  We will release more specific details as we approach race day.

Rest assured that Corrigan Sports will conduct an enjoyable, safe and entertaining race experience based within the limits that are required by the city.  We are so excited to be hosting live races again!

New Date: June 12 & 13

Delaware Running Festival Postponed Target Date June 12 & 13, 2021

Baltimore, MD (March 30, 2021) — Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) announced today the 2021 Delaware Running will be postponed. The new target date is June 12 & 13.

After meeting with representatives from the mayor’s office, health department, and the River Front Development, the group decided that at this time rescheduling the event was the safest and best resolution.

We were hopeful that things would turn around with the deployment of vaccines and other metrics but at this time, the city entities are not yet comfortable issuing a permit. Just this week, the Governor updated the outdoor capacity policy and further opened vaccine access so things are moving in the right direction.

Of course, metrics will need to continue to progress before our permit will officially be approved for the agreed upon target date. At this time, the mayor’s office could not put a timetable on the approval. We will continue to work with the city and keep our participants informed with updates and changes. As always, runner safety remains a top priority.

Our mitigation plan will comply with the city’s public health protocols that are in place for outdoor activities. Please be aware that if the event does occur on June 12 & 13 race logistics will be modified to fit state & local health regulations. We will continue to communicate with the health regulators and await their future guidance.

Delaware Running Festival Status Update

We have received an interim decision from the city of Wilmington that our permit application for this year’s Delaware Running Festival unfortunately has been denied. Local authorities have pledged to continue to monitor key COVID metrics and allow us to run live if changes to those metrics allow us safely to host our event on April 24-25.

We remain hopeful as local conditions improve that our application and proposed mitigation steps will be reconsidered for hosting a live event April 24-25. Please be aware that if the event does occur on April 24-25 race logistics will be modified to fit state health regulations. We will continue to communicate with state health regulators and await their future guidance.

We understand participants need to plan and finalize their travel in advance for various reasons. If we are not permitted to run on April 24-25, we will plan to run the race live on a date (TBA) in late May or early June. Our final decision about hosting a live running festival will be announced no later than April 1.

Please CLICK HERE to learn more about your various options.

 

 


March 3, 2021

As spring quickly approaches, we are all anxious to return to in-person running events. We are encouraged by positive trends such as the steady decline in the coronavirus positivity rate, the weekly increase in national vaccine distribution efforts, and local professional teams allowing fans in the stands for the upcoming season.

We have had discussions with key groups to present our additional mitigation steps to comply with COVID-19 guidelines for a safe outdoor event. For example, one proposed major adjustment includes the introduction of wave starts to promote socially distanced participation while on the course.

If we run live, we will move the 5K to a twilight event with wave starts on Saturday, April 24 to stretch the event over two days and further promote social distancing. If you have registered for that distance, or are waiting to register for it, please note the date change.

We remain hopeful that we will be permitted to run live but still do not have the necessary confirmations from the city. That said, we are determined to stay the course. We’ll provide immediate updates of the festival’s permit application status as soon as decisions are made by key parties. Thank you for your patience and support of the Delaware Running Festival.

Corrigan Sports Announces “Worry Free Registration”

Let’s be honest– 2020 sucked. Both race participants and race organizers had their world — and everything they love about it — torn apart. Corrigan Sports is grateful for the running community for sticking by us in 2020 and making the best of a very tough situation.

Corrigan Sports is committed to the safety of our participants as we navigate through this unprecedented time as we look ahead to next year’s schedule. Rest assured, Corrigan Sports will do everything we can to put the safety of our participants, volunteers, fans and our staff as the top priority while monitoring the status of Covid-19 and heeding advice from local and state health officials.

As we look forward to 2021, we know that we need to provide you with a level of comfort when registering early. An organization such as Corrigan Sports cannot survive without race registration income. And early registrations help to cover things such as permits, staffing, rent and other race related expenses that are due long before race day.  That is why we are offering Worry-Free Registration for 2021.

It is our plan to host live events in 2021 under the guideline and precautions of local and state governments and do everything we can to make these events as safe for everyone. We are committed to putting extra safety protocols in place to ensure your safety and give you flexible options when registering with us.

  • Masks and social distancing requirements, alternate packet pick up options, staggered starts, and limited field sizes are all things that will be considered as the situation warrants.
  • If you register to run the live spring 2021 events and we are unable to host a live event, or you decide you are not comfortable participating, there will be NO DEFEREMENT FEE.
  • Live participants will be given the option to have their race bibs mailed to them in order to limit travel and personal exposure. All you have to do is cover the postage and handling fees.
  • We are also offering a virtual only option for all distances for those who are not comfortable running with us live in 2021 but still want to participate and support our event. These registrants will receive their race premium and medal in the mail and be able to submit their times online.
  • We anticipate expenses increasing in the post-Covid world. However, we are not increasing prices in 2021.  They will remain the same as they were in 2020 as a courtesy to our loyal participants.

 

No matter what capacity you decide to participate in 2021, we hope to celebrate you & your accomplishments!  Please reference our FAQs for more detailed information regarding 2021 registration and policies. Check out our website at corrigansports.com to SAVE THE DATE for all of our upcoming races.

Again, we thank you for being such loyal members of our community and hope we can provide you with the first-class experience in 2021 you have become accustomed to.

Delaware RunFest Updates

UPDATE: JUNE 29

Earlier in the spring Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) made the decision to postpone the Delaware Running Festival to August 2nd with the hopes local and national key health metrics for COVID-19 would trend in a positive direction. While Delaware and surrounding states are slowly reopening, the pace of recovery is not where authorities would like it to be in order to conduct a live Delaware Running Festival with our total number of projected participants. Combined with the fact our medical provider continues to need to keep their focus on the pandemic and thus will likely not be in a position to adequately staff our event, we have made the final decision to switch this year’s festival to a virtual event. This is not the outcome any of us wanted. However, we truly feel it is the best and safest decision for everyone under the current environment.

We’ve adjusted our plans accordingly, and offer you the options to participate virtually or defer your entry to next year without incurring any additional costs:

OPTION 1: Run the Virtual Delaware Running Festival (NO ACTION REQUIRED)

  • Participate virtually by running your distance and on your own “course” at your pace on your preferred date in accordance with your local or state social distancing guidelines.
    • We will focus our efforts on our rescheduled race date of August 2 to create a bigger sense of community.
  • We’ll ship virtual participants their Under Armour shirt and race medal prior to August 2nd (no additional charge; USPS tracking # to be provided)
  • Opportunity to upload race times & participate in an online virtual experience that only Corrigan Sports can deliver.
  • Engage in social media promotions such as photo contests and trivia
  • Additional random prizes will be included in mailings such as free or discounted 2021 DRF race entries and merchandise.
  • All entrants will be switched to VIRTUAL PARTICIPANT by default (unless you choose option 2 below to defer)
  • We will send follow up emails to virtual participants to make sure we have your correct premium size and mailing address prior to shipping your packet

OPTION 2: DEFER MY REGISTRATION (ACTION REQUIRED BY JULY 7)

  • If you choose not to run the Virtual Delaware Running Festival, you can defer your entry to the Delaware Running Festival in 2021 or 2022.
  • You must make your deferment decision by July 7. There is no charge to defer.
  • Deferred entries will not receive this year’s race premiums or medal
  • To complete your deferral, follow these steps:
  • Log into RunSignup and go to your profile: https://runsignup.com/Profile

Per our policy which every runner agrees to during the online registration & waiver process with a required check box check box, CSE does not offer registration refunds.

CSE appreciates everyone’s patience and understanding as we made difficult decisions that were in the best interest of our runners and for Wilmington as a whole. Stay safe everyone.

________________________________________________________________________________

UPDATE:  JUNE 1

We realize we have not provided any race updates for the 2020 Delaware Running Festival (DRF) in a while, so we want you to know what we’ve been doing since we last touched base.

Lee Corrigan was recently named a member of Maryland Governor Larry Hogan’s Sports Advisory group to create new safety measures for large endurance events along with professional, amateur and youth athletics in our region.   It is a honor to be included on such a prestigious committee and the insight will certainly help us in creating a safe event where, with reasonable adjustments, most runners feel comfortable running in a public setting.

Our intentions are still to conduct the Delaware RunFest on our target date, August 2. Our philosophy is to be as patient as possible. First and foremost, our first responders and local health officials remain engaged with their respective roles addressing the pandemic.   Once we receive an official go ahead, we will publish the safety steps and precautions we will implement so you can make a personal decision about your participation. We know everyone has unique concerns.  AT NO TIME WILL WE EVER JEAPORDIZE RUNNER SAFETY.

We recently mailed about 150 race packets to runners who selected the virtual option.  Those of you who did not select to run the 2020 Delaware RunFest virtually still have two options:

Reminder of your current options:

  1. KEEP YOUR REGISTRATION (no action required): If you want to run on the rescheduled date in 2020 – there is nothing that you need to do on your end. Your registration will automatically be transferred to the new date.
  2. DEFER (action required): you still have the opportunity to defer to 2021 with no transaction fee. By choosing this option you will get to run in next year’s race for free, but forfeit receiving this year’s medal and premium.

UPDATE: MAY 8

 

New Date: Sunday, August 2, 2020

The Delaware Running Festival has been RESCHEDULED to Sunday, August 2, 2020. Just like the rest of the world, the running community is reacting to the coronavirus pandemic as we receive new information daily. CSE appreciates everyone’s patience and understanding as we navigate these unchartered waters and do what is best for our runners and for the city as a whole.

Selecting a new date that works for all parties including the venue, police, medical and other city services is not an easy task.  However, CSE felt like it was worth the extra effort because we know how important racing is to our participants.  That said, you do have options should our new date not work for your schedule.

At this time, we are offering current Delaware Running Festival registrants 3 options:

  • OPTION 1: KEEP YOUR REGISTRATION (NO ACTION REQUIRED)
