As many of you may recall over six months ago we originally planned to bring you the Philadelphia Women’s Half Marathon but we were told by the City of Philadelphia that they had placed a still in affect moratorium on any new events taking place along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway until a feasibility study is completed to review the impact of major events on its residents, businesses and traffic.
Undeterred we have been hard at work seeking another location to host this new marquee event for women. Premier Event Management is proud to announce the inaugural running of the Wilmington Women’s Half Marathon and 8K Road Race to be held on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from Wilmington, Delaware. “We are excited to announce that this new running event for women has found a home in Wilmington,’ stated race director Bill Burke. “The city has opened its arms to host this new race that we hope will excite the mind, body and spirit of every female competitor,” said Burke.
The 2018 Wilmington Women’s Half Marathon and 8K will take place from the Tubman Garrett Riverfront Park on the banks of the Delaware River. The Half Marathon and 8K courses will take competitors on a tour of this beautiful colonial city, with all its historical charm from the downtown start and finish, to the Chase Riverfront Convention Center, to the beautiful residential neighborhoods that will host our athletes.
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 5th, 2017 at 10:00am EST when registration opens at $1.00 for our 2018 event!
