Registration: sells out in minutes. Last year registration opened on April 1, so keep your eyes peeled to their Facebook page!
Location: the Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton, DE.
Course: the course was nothing spectacular but was a five mile loop around the surrounding neighborhoods and town. It's a large race so there was a good amount of crowd support and distraction with all the costumed racers! The real joy was the finish line!
Finish Party: this is where the fun happens! Each racer gets FOUR Dogfish Head brews. Amazing! Great food at the finish such as fresh bagels, a yogurt and granola bar, fruit, drinks, etc. There were also a number of food trucks- even one serving apple cider donuts!
Lodging: hotels book up quickly and hot fairly expensive even with the off season. A friend was able to rent one of the town homes at the brewery for $100 a night on air bnb which is a great deal! With the late start of the race (9am) we made it a day trip from DC.
This was a great race and I hope I get in every year! In addition to the fun after party that you earn after running a fast 5 miles, the race was able to donate $100,000 to the Nature Conservancy. That is AWESOME in my book. Plus I love any excuse to head to Rehoboth, DE!
