DESCRIPTION

Join Indoor Track Delaware & the Seashore Striders for the Inaugural 5K Run/Walk as we hit the pavement, the trails, the dirt, and the grass to help raise funds for a feasibility study evaluating the market for an indoor track/sports complex.

Indoor Track Delaware (ITD) is a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness for the need of an indoor track/sports complex in the Diamond State.

In 2013, Delaware lost its only 200 meter indoor track when the University of Delaware turfed over its indoor track for a football practice facility. Since then, our DIAA State Indoor Track & Field Championships are held out of state, two hours away, in PG County, Maryland. Every 200 meter track meet is an away meet. We want to change that and have a strategy to build a facility that will.

Comprised of coaches, parents and concerned citizens, ITD believes such a venue will address the unmet demand of indoor track athletes from Delaware high schools and local college teams; attract Mid-Atlantic region sports tourism dollars from December - March; provide tournaments and camps facility use for wrestling, volleyball, cheer and basketball throughout the calendar year; and improve community health and well being for Delawareans of all ages.

Again, Indoor Track Delaware’s Virtual 5K Run/Walk will help raise funds for our feasibility study. The goal of the study will be to determine the market demand, financial feasibility, and economic opportunity for a state-of-the-art indoor track/sports complex in Delaware.

We thank you for walking, running or simply donating to our cause.
