As of Mar 8th, 351 marathon runners were registered for the Sunday May 18, 2008 Christiana Care Health System Delaware Marathon Running Festival presented by New Balance Delaware.

Congratulations to all of you who ran in yesterday's Caesar Rodney Half Marathon in Wilmington, DE

And on a very, sad note, a very good friend of ours, marathoner and Hawaii Iron Man triathlon competitor Mike Clark passed away this week at the age of 51.   We'll really miss you Mike but will never forget you.
