The 2021 Delaware Running Festival is scheduled to be a live race BUT we are excited to announce that the 2021 race will also have a virtual component! With 4 great virtual distances, the 5k, the 4 Person Relay, Half Marathon, and the Full Marathon, there’s something for everyone. So get registered today and then check out the next steps below!
I registered to run virtually… what next?!
2.) JOIN OUR VIRTUAL COMMUNITY (coming soon!). We’ll be creating a special Virtual Run Delaware Run Fest Facebook Group to encourage the community race day feel we all know and love. The page will have all the information you need to complete your run, as well as interactive activities, encouragement & race day tips.
While most of our virtual fun will happen on our Facebook page, you can also join us on our other social media accounts. You can find us on Instagram at @DEmarathon and Strava @Delaware Running Festival.
We’ll also be sending out need to know information through emails.
2.) Prepare for your race day:
- Download your bib on Run Sign Up
- Make sure to download RaceJoy to get the complete race day experience!
- Keep checking out our online run community for tips, tricks and fun
3.) How to Run virtually:
We’re encouraging everyone to complete their race on April 25th for a true race day feel. However, you’re free to do your race ANYTIME, ANYWHERE!
You may use whatever timing and distance tracking method/app that you chose. You are not required to submit your time, however if you want your time posted online, you must submit your time on Run Sign Up by June 14th . Regardless of whether or not you submit your time, you will get your premium and medal.
4.) Enjoy your SWAG!
If you register to run virtually by April 11th, your gear will be sent to you before April 25th. If you sign up after the April 11th date, you will receive your gear in June.
We are also hoping to hold a live packet pick up, with more information on that TBA!
