Inexpensive, near a dear friend's home, would count for Delaware for me, and I like the bling. All good reasons!

Didn't mean to make the AFB HM sound fun. It is flat as a pancake and kinda dull since you just run around a military base with mostly nondescript buildings. I suppose one highlight is the AFB museum at the end (free for participants) and running under jet fighter plans at the finish. But it is inexpensive!

Hi,
I was sharing this race in case anyone in the Delaware area was interested. I agree it is expensive, but it will be my first 1/2 marathon and the location and timing worked out for me personally.

Thanks for the info on the other races.

I hear thats a good one that I will never get to run ... it's the same weekend as Maryland Half marathon.

Why are you telling us about this? Have you done it or have a vested interest in it?

At $70 for early registration, it's expensive for a non-profit HM. It's priced more like a for-profit HM. And there are plenty of excellent of HMs in Delaware that are less expensive. For example, Rehoboth Beach HM is $65 and has a phenomenal after-party. And if price is an issue, the Dover AFB HM is a bargain at $30 and it tops out at $35 for race-day registration!
