Delaware Stadium
625 South College Avenue in Newark

Ever want to finish a race inside a stadium? Here’s a great chance to do so. This out-and-back course on the University of Delaware’s south campus, though flat, is a good challenge for all. It finishes on the football field in Delaware Stadium.

Temple Beth El
301 Possum Park Road in Newark

It started in 1999, right after the late CRR Scott Mackler was diagnosed with ALS. It’s probably the toughest road 5K in Delaware. Runners are rewarded, though, with a full buffet after the run. Awards for top finishers—both runners and walkers.
