When visiting the Delaware Seashore, some people prefer to just put their feet up, relax and enjoy the water, sun and fresh air. But visitors who are more active might be on the lookout for activities that let them stay in shape while on vacation. If that is you, you are in luck! The Coastal Delaware Running Festival is coming up on April 20th – 22nd!
Whether you are an experienced runner or a total novice, the festival has a race for you!
Sunday brings three races. Hardcore runners can check out the 26.2-mile Boston Marathon Qualifying Run, with a new course for 2018 that begins and ends at the iconic Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk. If you are working your way up to a full marathon, you might want to try the half marathon or 9k, which, like the full marathon, begin and end at the boardwalk. Both of the half and full marathon routes, as well as the 9k, will take you through the beautiful Delaware Seashore State Parks’ Gordons Pond Wild Life Area along with some historic neighborhoods.
On Saturday, those runners who prefer a 5k can enjoy a fast and flat out-and-back course through Dewey Beach.
The fun does not end after the races are over. Keep the party going at the Finish Line Celebration on Sunday, with complimentary beer for runners, a full spread of food and live music.
So runners, take note! If you are attending the Coastal Delaware Running Festival, the Atlantic View Hotel will make the perfect place to relax before and after the race. Give us a call today at 1-800-777-4162, or book your stay online after you register for your race!
