After much deliberation, the Pike Creek Valley Running Club has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 edition of the Delaware Distance Classic - originally set for October 11th. Current state and county regulations on group events, and the upward trend in new cases of COVID-19 contributed to this decision. Those who already registered for the 2020 event will have the option to receive a FULL refund, or roll their registration over to the fall 2021 event. We look forward to introducing an unofficial event this fall if the environment permits and seeing everyone for an official Delaware Distance Classic 15k in 2021.

The Pike Creek Valley Running Club was founded in 1982 by runners who resided in the Pike Creek area of New Castle County, Delaware.
Our club is dedicated to promoting physical fitness through running. Although comprised primarily of Delaware runners from the Newark and Wilmington areas, we have members from other parts of Delaware and surrounding areas of Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
We welcome runners of all levels of ability from beginning joggers to the highly competitive road racer to marathoners. Walkers are also welcome. PCVRC currently has over 160 families and individual members. We are a social club and very supportive of all our member's running goals. Most importantly, we have a great time running.
Join us for just $25, which includes your whole family!
