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 be 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.

Choose between the 3.1 mile 5k course or the longer 10 mile course "Live or Virtual". A great training long run for the Seashore Classic 1/2 Marathon in early May. The start/finish area is located IN NORTH SHORES; Rehoboth Beach AT THE CAPE HENLOPEN STATE PARK GORDONS POND TRAIL HEAD. See you on the Starting Line for the 15th annual!
