Seashore Strider Summer Racing Series

Sunday, July 16, 2023 - 7:30am

26th Bill Degnan 5k Run

Dear Runners & Walkers,

Thanks for registering for the Bill Degnan 5k.   Here are some details about the event and a section on the weather issues.

- Cape Henlopen High School Legends Stadium...1270 Kings Highway is the location.

- Registration is scheduled to begin at 6:15 am and we hope to have it at the concession stand.

- Those runners who are taking part in the Championship Series and you already have your bib...your shirt with your name has been put aside for you to pickup.

- The race will begin at 7:30 am

- The Course is here.   CLICK FOR COURSE

- Wear all bibs on the front so my team can see them at the finish



For 33 years the Seashore Striders have always held the same policy...rain we go and thunder/lighting we hold.  

- Weather in the beach area normally goes through quickly and thunderstorms rarely hang around for long...however tomorrows weather is slightly different as the whole morning seems to be covered with rain/thunder/lighting.

- Hour by hour ...check it out here SUNDAY WEATHER

- Radar at the Start.  SUNDAY RADAR AT THE START

If we have to postpone we have an open date on the 23rd and the 30th of July and I would need approval from CHSD and my first choice would be the 23rd with my second choice being the 30th.

- Our policy if you can not make the postpone date and we do not get it in tomorrow is that the Seashore Striders can transfer you to a future event or you can donate your entry fee to the charity.    

I will not know the condition till the morning and if a decision is made to postpone I will post on the SS website, Facebook and I will email all registered runners.   I can not make the decision tonight however I will be up most of the night monitoring the weather.  I apologize in advance if you are driving in from afar or are already in town for the race.
