The Delaware Marathon Running Festival starts on April 26 with the full 26.2-mile marathon and a 13.1-mile half marathon. While in the past runners were used to a two-loop race, the new marathon course will take people through some of the most scenic and beautiful parts of downtown Wilmington, running through Brandywine Park along the Brandywine River, as well as through historic neighborhoods and Rodney Square.
