For the past 58 years, runners have flocked to Delaware from around the country to raise money for the American Lung Association while taking on the notoriously challenging and scenic American Lung Association Half Marathon (formerly known as the Caesar Rodney Half Marathon) course through Wilmington.
This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged the country and changed the landscape of events, including the American Lung Association Half Marathon. While this year's race will look different, your support is more important than ever. Funds raised from this year's event will not only benefit our important work of saving lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through our pioneering model of education, advocacy, and research - but will also benefit theCOVID-19 Action Initiative; the American Lung Association's $25M initiative to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics.
*** CHANGES FOR 2021 ***
To preserve this race's historic standing as the oldest half marathon in the country while engaging in a fun, lively, safe, and socially distant in-person event, we have pivoted and re-imaged the 2021 race.
As the trusted champion of lung health for the past 116 years, we are proud to highlight the new event name which aligns with the American Lung Association's refreshed and renewed focus on the future of lung health. This year's race has also been moved toJune 12th at Bellevue State Park in Wilmington, Delaware, and will feature a challenging in-person 8K (capped at 200 runners) through the scenic grounds of Bellevue State Park and a virtual half marathon that you can complete whenever and wherever you are! We know these are big changes for this event but, it is our duty to protect the lung health and safety of our runners and the thousands of Delawareans our work directly impacts.
