The 2019 Delaware Marathon Running Festival –

Expo Review


The Delaware Marathon Running Festival was held on Sunday, April 28, 2019 in Wilmington, DE. Offering the distances of the marathon, half marathon, 4-person relay, 5k, and kids run, there were options for the entire family!

The Expo

The expo and packet pickup took place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Downtown Wilmington on the Saturday before the race from 10am-5pm. I found some street parking about 2 blocks away and walked to the hotel.

There was a spot for you take a picture before entering the expo. You could also sign up for your free race photos.

Bib and shirt pickup was super easy and it was not crowded at all. There were some race shirts and other clothing items for sale, and I ended up buying 3 shirts (2 short sleeve and 1 long sleeve) and a pint glass for only $10! Score!

However, there were no other products available. I was really hoping to pick up some gels or gummies for the race (as I was not prepared). I had to Google the closest running store and headed to Delaware Running Company about 10 minutes away to get some fuel for the race.


Previous years, the expo was held in a muddy park, so I think this is a step up. Hopefully, for future years, they will consider offering more items at the expo for a one-stop-shop!
