    Hills, Back of the pack friendly. There is a marathon at the same time. Small race, small expo. Loved the pint glass swag. The marathon was two loops of the half marathon.

    The folks associated with the race are quite nice. Production is fairly decent considering the size of the marathon field (less than 500 marathon runners).

    COURSE: Mostly flat. Two half marathon loops. LOTS of turns on the course. I didn’t find them to be adequately signed. And, running at 5:45, some of the volunteers were gone by the time I hit miles 20+. And the run was opened earlier than I believe that they had stated. That, for me, was the deal breaker. I actually had to wait at multiple lights during the last mile.

    No real expo. Same t-shirt for all – Marathon, Half-Marathon, and the Marathon Relay teams. Beer glass and hat were added swag.

    Finisher medal is nice. The finish line festivities included adequate – and decent – food and beverages (champagne plus beer).

    I ran this race the day after a half marathon, so the rolling terrain tired me out more than usual. I’m not a big fan of two-looped courses because they generally mess with my head — at the start of the second loop, I felt far more tired than I should have been. However, it was a very nice course, which went from riverwalks to neighborhoods, zoos and downtown Wilmington. The medal was so-so, but the t-shirt and pint glass made up handily. There are only two big marathons in Delaware that I know of, though I would probably recommend that 50-staters try the HALF marathon in Wilmington. Double loops are the worst.
