Description

SEASHORE STRIDER RACE PHILOSOPHY DURING COVID

  • The Seashore Striders are rolling out their 2021 race events and continue to work with the Delaware Public Health on following the Covid Guidelines for the State of Delaware (currently at 250 gatherings).  We are assuming that, and are hopeful, that these events will remain live events.  The Seashore Striders are still offering runners a chance to join us virtually and being able to continue to support the event.  If any of the Seashore Strider events of 2021 are forced to drop the live option, we will continue offering the virtual event and will add the Seashore Strider Covid Safety Plan to this website and follow our Covid Plan.
