Bethany Beach • Delaware Seashore State Park
Half Marathon | Half Marathon Relay | 10k | 5k | Challenge Runs
We are heartbroken to inform you that the BETHANY BEACH SPORTS WEEKEND will not take place this year due to an additional State of Emergency Extension Order issued by Governor John Carney with no indication when the State of Delaware will
enter into Phase 3. Unfortunately, this decision is beyond our control.
The Bethany Beach Sports Weekend is our marquee Bethany Beach Event which
benefits the Bethany Beach Volunteer Fire Company and many other area charities.
Each year runners participate in our event and enjoy our scenic coastal towns, our beautiful Delaware Seashore State Parks, the local shops, restaurants, and our after
race celebrations. We are sad that it is necessary to cancel this year’s event.
While we do not provide any refunds, we are offering Free Deferrals:
1. For those who registered organically to the 2020 Bethany Beach Sports Weekend:
You will be granted a deferral to race the September 18-19, 2021 Bethany Beach Sports Weekend. You will be emailed a Registration
Link when Registration Opens!
2. For those who deferred from the 2020 Coastal Delaware Running Festival:
You will be granted a deferral to race the April 17-18, 2021 Coastal Delaware Running Festival. You will be emailed a Registration Link when Registration Opens!
We know you’ve put in months of training – getting up early, logging long miles, and making sacrifices in your daily lives. We are runners too – we know what goes into getting yourself ready for race day. You’ve spent time and money, and we are so disappointed that we can’t celebrate together on race day.
Our small staff & volunteers put our hearts & souls into every event we put on.
We take great care in planning for our races which involves pre-production expenses
and commitments – everything from your race swag to on-course fuel, your finish
line party to making sure we have enough porta-potties. We LOVE what we do.
We wish you good health for you and your family!
Rick & Ernie
The Focus Multisports Team
COVID UPDATE: July 30th
We have been in contact with all agencies and the Town of Bethany regarding a Sept. 19-20 live event. We will follow all state and local mandates and guidelines that are in place at that time. As a restaurant owner, I have been working within these mandates and guidelines safely all summer and following the multiple modifications…the issue is that they change weekly and to create a safety plan now would be misleading and counter productive. Standby for updates. ~Rick
