Rehoboth Beach Seashore Marathon & Half Marathon, Saturday, December 7, 2019
More than 2,000 runners cross the finish line each year in both races combined at Delaware’s Rehoboth Beach Seashore Marathon & Half Marathon, which marks just the 8th time the event featured an individual half marathon after the previous years’ running. The out-and-back course for the race starts and finishes along the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, a real wooden boardwalk that spans multiple city blocks and features shop after eclectic shop along the beach.
The area’s charm helped the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk earn Reader’s Digest Magazine’s “Best of America” designation in 2006, as well as being named as one of the nation’s best places to retire by AARP in the same year.
From the starting line along the boardwalk, runners in both the half and the full marathon share the same route for the first nine miles of the race. For more information please visit: http://www.rbmarathon.com/
