SEASHORE STRIDER RACE PHILOSOPHY DURING COVID

The Seashore Striders are rolling out their 2022 race events and continue to work with the Delaware Public Health on following the Covid Guidelines for the State of Delaware (currently No LIMIT).  We are assuming that, and are hopeful, that these events will continue to be live events.  If any of the Seashore Strider events of 2022 are forced to drop to a virtual option, we will continue offering the virtual event and will add the Seashore Strider Covid Safety Plan to this website and follow our Covid Plan.

DESCRIPTION

Join the Seashore Striders for one of the popular races in the national Summer Capital of Rehoboth Beach.  The 15th Race for the Ribbon 5k.   The 6th event in the popular Seashore Strider Championship Series, this year's 15th Race for the Ribbon 5k will be held "live" giving runners a great event.  The Race for the Ribbon 5k is a great event raising money for the terrible disease of cancer and continuing a mid-summer tradition that has raised over $200k due to the efforts of longtime organizer Stephanie Shuttleworth.    Due to the Coronavirus restrictions, be aware that the "live" option is subject to change.

RACE DIRECTOR NOTE...If you register by Monday of race-week I can guarantee you your shirt size.   If you register after Monday there is no guarantee you will receive the swag.   If your shirt size you would like is "sold out" and you choose another size- the size you choose will be the one we hand you.   Do not show up and tell us you do not want the size you ordered.  Also some race directors give away shirts of runners that "no show", but the Seashore Striders do not.   If you paid for a swag on time and it comes with the entry then we are not giving it away to you because you did not register in a timely fashion.  This is a situation I am addressing because I have had some runners give my volunteers a bit of a hard time when they registered a day before or hours before.  The other nice thing about registering early is that it helps the event race director when anticipating numbers as we communicate with t-shirt venders, DelDOT's, paramedics, police and host restaurants.  The nice thing for the runner is that the earlier you register the cost is usually lower and everyone loves to save $$.   Thank you for your understanding & cooperation in this matter...Race Director Tim-SS

RACE COURSE

The 15th Race for the Ribbon 5k is a flat & fast course through the Country Club development of Rehoboth Beach, just south of the Avenue.  

  • COURSE ETIQUETTE

    • ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO RUN ON THE COURSE THAT IS MARKED WITH ARROWS AND CONES.  

    • PLEASE STAY ON THE ROAD WHERE IT IS MARKED AND POLICE ARE STATIONED

    • DO NOT RACE ON THE SIDEWALK, RUN THROUGH PRIVATE PROPERTY, OR RUN ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE ROAD.   IN MOST CASES YOU SHOULD BE RACING WITH TRAFFIC.   (FOR EXAMPLE, IF THE COURSE IS MARKED WITH ARROWS & CONES SO RUNNERS ARE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF WILMINGTON AND CHRISTIAN STREETS, THEN NO RUNNER SHOULD BE ON THE LEFT SIDE FACING TRAFFIC).  ALSO, WHEN THE RACE IS DIRECTED AROUND A CONE OR CONES, FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN CUTTING THE COURSE.

    • FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE RACE INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN A DISQUALIFICATION FROM THE EVENT.   THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION IN THIS MATTER.   RACE DIRECTOR TIM-SS

 

  • SEASHORE STRIDER COURSE GUIDELINES:  THE FOLLOWING ARE NOT ALLOWED IN A SEASHORE STRIDER EVENT...THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL PARTICIPANTS...RD TIM-SS
    • BIKES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE ON THE COURSE RIDING ALONG/PACING ANY REGISTERED RUNNER
    • BANDITS (NON REGISTERED) RUNNERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE IN THE RACE RUNNING ALONG/PACING ANY REGISTERED RUNNER
    • HEADPHONES/EAR PODS ARE DISCOURAGED WEARING IN BOTH EARS DUE TO SAFETY OF HEARING TRAFFIC
      • THIS IS A TOUGH RULE TO ENFORCE AS 85% OF RUNNERS IN RACES LISTEN TO MUSIC AND THE RRCA RECOGNIZED THAT AND MOVED THE ENFORCEMENT FROM A DISQUALIFICATION TO MAKING IT THE RACE DIRECTORS DECISION.   MOST RACE DIRECTORS IN THE COUNTRY EITHER IGNORE THE ISSUE OR TRY TO WORK WITH THE RUNNERS.   MY STAND AS A RACE DIRECTOR IS TO ASK YOU TO NOT WEAR THEM AND IF YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST THEN ONLY WEAR THEM IN ONE EAR AND AT A LOW VOLUME LEVEL.
