Hopping Across Delaware

7 spots left. Registration ends August 8, 2020 at 11:59pm EDT

96 miles is all that stands in your way from running the length of Delaware.

This virtual challenge is a great way to log some miles and earn some cool swag along the way.

So lace up those sneakers and lets run/walk the length of the First State together.

Run/Walk through one county or all three.  The further you go, the more you EARN!

How does this challenge work?

Starting Monday July 27 you can start your journey from the bottom of Delaware to the top.

There will be a daily post on the Hopping Across Delaware FB Page.

Make sure you request to join the private FB page.

On the daily post you will comment a picture of your gps with the miles you EARNED that day.

We will then add your miles to our tracker HERE.

You have until Monday August 31st to run/walk as many miles as you can.

SWAG will be rewarded based on how far you go.

What miles count?

Miles that count:

Your daily run/walk/hike.

Treadmill miles count.


Miles that do not count:

Daily steps converted to miles.

Bike or elliptical.


Delaware has three counties.

Each completed county has SWAG associated with it.

You will virtuall start in Sussex County.  29 miles.

Then you will virtually travel through Kent County.  30 miles.

Finally you will virtually finish through New Castle County.  37 miles.
