Race4Warrriors 5K & Half Marathon Challenges in Lewes, DE

Join your fellow runners for the Race4Warriors 5K & Half Marathon Challenges, held on Saturday, May 11, 2024 in the beautiful town of Lewes, DE. This event has been a beloved tradition for years, bringing together participants from all over to pledge support for Wounded Warriors and Homeless Veterans. The town of Lewes provides the perfect location for this scenic race, with its quaint charm and stunning coastline.

The Half Marathon Challenge is the highlight of the event and will truly test your endurance. The course begins at Parade Field in Cape Henlopen State Park, where you’ll race on hardened surfaces and crushed gravel trails. From there, you’ll venture onto 2.6 miles of beach sand. This is meant to give racers the feel of what it’s like to march on desert sands in the Middle East – something faced by so many of our combat veterans.

This section of the course is undoubtedly the most challenging, both physically and mentally, but as you push through, remember the sacrifices made by our deployed women and men. You’ll then leave the beach environment and finish the remaining 5.25 miles back in the state park, passing by the historic Fort Miles Barracks.

The unique twist to the Half Marathon Challenge is the Heavy March Challenge – in this,  each participant carries a 15lb pack of nonperishable foods, which will be donated to Homeless Veteran Shelters at the conclusion of the race. This Heavy March option adds an extra layer of challenge and meaning to the race.

The Race4Warriors 5K & Half Marathon Challenges take place rain or shine (excluding unsafe weather conditions). After the race, runners are encouraged to stick around and celebrate with live music and local vendors at our “Celebration of Warriors.”
