10K COURSE

2022 marks the first time the 10K joins the Delaware Running Festival as it replaces the team relay in the event line up.  Participants can run the 6.2 mile course along side of their teammates and no longer need to worry about bus rides and chip exchanges.  Those looking to add a team concept should consider creating a social team.

The 10K course follows parts of the half-marathon course, starting and finishing at Tubman-Garrett Park and enjoying both downtown and park settings during the route.

JOIN A SOCIAL TEAM 

Having the support of your friends during your training and race is priceless, but we decided to add an extra incentive! Regardless of when your teammates register, the entire group will get a $10 refund once your team reaches 10 or more members. The refund will go directly back to the card used to  pay for registration. PLUS there’s potential for teams to win extra benefits and deals!

YOUR 2022 MEDAL AND INSPIRATION COIN

The Delaware Running Festival aims to celebrate your entire journey and those who help you get there.

A tradition that started in 2020 continues this year with finishers of the Delaware Running Festival receiving a medal that contains a removable Inspiration Coin.  Participants are encouraged to keep their medal for themselves and share the magnetic coin with some who inspired them along their Delaware RunFest journey. Who is your inspiration?  A training partner, a mentor, a friend or family member?  We know it takes a lot of commitment from you and your support group to get you to race day.

More About the Inspiration Coin concept–  The idea behind the design was inspired by long time Corrigan Sports supporter Sid Busch.  Sid is Navy veteran and runs selflessly on behalf of fallen soldiers.  Sid presents the medal he earns to the soldier’s family. Challenge coins are a long honored military tradition that are shared and traded among units.   Our Delaware Medal melds these two concepts together.  The medal is the participant’s to keep and display proudly.  The Inspiration Coin is meant to be paid forward to a person or group who helped inspire the participant to achieve their life goals, such as running our race.
