Monday, October 28, 2024 • Lewes and Rehoboth, DE
The Seawitch Racing Festival Weekend has been the highlight of the running calendar in Lewes and Rehoboth, Delaware, for years, and the 2024 edition promises to be bigger and better than ever! The half marathon has always been a crowd favorite, and for good reason. With a beautiful out-and-back course through Cape Henlopen State Park, runners will be treated to stunning views of the coast and lush pines, making for an unforgettable race experience.
Starting at 8 am on Saturday, runners will line up at the Main Beach Parking Lot in Lewes, DE, ready to take on the challenge of the Seawitch Racing Festival Half Marathon course. They’ll start by making their way along the beach before heading towards Lewes town center, then onto Rehoboth and back again.
The Seawitch Racing Festival Half Marathon is also a preview of the Lewes section of the popular Rehoboth Seashore Marathon that will take place in December. By running the half, participants can get a sneak peek of what’s to come and start preparing for the full marathon.
This half marathon is also a chance for runners to give back to the local community. The event is held to benefit various charities in the Lewes/Rehoboth area, as well as Toys for Tots. Participants can feel good knowing that their race entry fee is going towards a worthy cause.
Of course, no race would be complete without some killer swag! Runners will receive a long sleeve, 100% cotton, pre-shrunk race shirt, and a finisher medal upon completing the course. Cool custom awards will also be given out to top finishers. And let’s not forget about the pasta dinner option and packet pickup held the night before the race!
So lace up those sneakers, grab your water bottle, and get ready to for the Seawitch Racing Festival Half Marathon in October!
