- Road Race
Let me start by saying that this was my second half marathon, but I traveled to get there mostly because of the historical aspect of the race. It's claim to fame is that it is the oldest half in the United States and named for a delegate in the Continental Congress. There were maybe about 800 runners combined in the 5k and the half marathon. The 5k group went first and the half marathon runners went 10 minutes later. The first 6 miles were relatively flat taking the runners though some interesting areas of Wilmington and along a river. The second half was all hills with a nasty steep incline the last .25 which was the steepest incline of them all that led to the finish. The aid stations were great as they were about every 2 miles. The race so super organized and they served pizza, fruit, and all sorts of food at the end of the race for free. I would run this one again even with the nasty hills at the end of the race. There were not a lot of crowds in the beginning but there were some bystanders towards the end.
