Other running locations:
We get occasional inquiries on our website from people who are new to running or new to the area. The most often asked question concerns
where we get together to do group runs. Up until this point, the answer has been, with the notable exception of the Bagel Run, that we don't have
group runs. Whether this is caused by the fact that we are spread over the county and beyond, that we have many different schedules, or that it
is all too easy just to put on running apparel and head out the front door for a run rather than travel to meet others, matters little. Although many
runners tend to be solitarily content to run alone, many new runners and those new to the area may need companionship and encouragement to get going.
Here we have complied a list of places to run and, where possible, people to contact who run in particular locations. All of the people listed have expressed a
willingness to work with new runners or runners who wish to increase their distance. Even if the pace appears to be too fast for beginning runners this
should not stop anyone from contacting any of these people. When runners are training in groups, faster runners are generally willing to either take
breaks during the runs to allow slower runners to catch up or adjust their pace to something that others can maintain.
Please note that State Parks require either a daily parking fee or a yearly parking permit from April through October. However, this does not prohibit
you from going to these parks on foot. The Wilmington parks, although now maintained by the State Park system, do not require parking fees.
Nor are fees required in New Castle County Parks or Pennsylvania State Parks. Maryland State Parks do require fees.
Abbreviations used are: Water - H2O; Restrooms - Rrms; Food and beverage places nearby - FB. Some State Park locations turn off water during winter months.
Please note that we encourage female runners to run with a companion in isolated areas.
