Join us and celebrate the “unofficial” arrival of Summer on Memorial Day weekend for the exciting 4th annual New Moon Half & Quarter Marathon AND the Crescent Moon 5K presented by Mount Carmel. The event kicks off fun summer evenings with a Half Marathon (13.1 miles), Quarter Marathon (6.55 miles) and the Crescent Moon 5K (3.1 miles). All three races, which begin and end in the heart of downtown Delaware, Ohio are open to runners and walkers.
The New Moon is a party and celebration of all that is fun on great summer nights – including a festive post-event Celebration Block Party for you and all your friends and family.
For 2017, we have a *NEW* course! We have changed-up the course to provide a different perspective of the City of Delaware! The urban run course starts directly in the downtown of Delaware, takes you through historic business district, the neighborhoods that make up the city, through the campus of Ohio Wesleyan University, around the beautiful Mingo Park and alongside the Olentangy River, to an exciting downhill finish back at the heart of downtown. The New Moon Half & Quarter Marathon and Crescent Moon 5K is the must-do running and walking event of the summer.
Who can participant? You. We encourage runners and walkers of all shapes, sizes and abilities to participate. The course is open and fully supported for three and a half hours. Walker must be able to walk at an approximately 15:30 pace to complete the half marathon.
