William Brent's thoughts:

The 2021 Delaware Running Festival is still scheduled to be a live race BUT they also had a virtual component! Since the Live event was moved to a day I had already booked an engagement; I opted for the virtual run.
The effort the event organizers made to make this event socially engaging from far away was spectacular.

They provided a really amazing photo upload tool and contests throughout the day to engage with the virtual runners.
To help prepare for race day:

I was able to download my bib on Run Sign Up
I downloaded RaceJoy to get the complete race day experience!
If you registered to run virtually by April 11th, your gear would have been sent to you before April 25th. If you signed up after the April 11th date, you will receive your gear in June like me.
The race directors communicated often leading up to the event.

They are very engaged on social and constantly provided information on Instagram and Facebook

I really want to go to Wilmington and actually run there.
The race organizers push so much energy out into the world that I want to be a part of it.

I would recommend this event to anyone looking to explore Delaware even though I didn’t get to this year. I feel the race pivoted well and was engaging, rather than some races where you get your medal and your bib in the mail with no follow-up or follow through.
