CCHS Delaware Marathon course update

In an earlier blog i talked about the new 2 loop route for our May 17th DE Marathon that will start and finish at Tubman Park. (next to the Amtrak station) So here is the latest. Doug White is getting very close to certifying for us....This chore has not been easy. When you have a 2 loop route that has to start and finish at the same location plus a section of lap one (Riverfront) that we can not use for second loop ....well....this makes for quite the puzzle. But it is done and i really believe you will just love the new course. To make up distance on the second loop the marathon runners will come back to Tubman Park where the half marathon runners take a left and to the finish line while the marathon runners will continue on the river walk (at Harry's heading south) past the shops and the rowing club to turnaround point. They will come back to Tubman Park the same way and continue on the loop route. I decided that flat is good and that our other choice was using the hills of Rockford Park......so there you have it.....2 loop marathon course....one loop half marathon course and stand alone 4 person relay.....We are going to show off our City of Wilmington like never before! Hope you can join us.
