Sundance Land and Sea Racing Festival
CAMP Rehoboth and Seashore Striders announce the 6th annual Sundance Land and Sea Racing Festival, to be held on Sunday, August 30 in Rehoboth Beach.
Held rain or shine, the event starts (8 a.m.) and finishes on the Boardwalk at Rehoboth Avenue. Participants will have several race options including a 5K run, 1 mile “fun” walk, ½ mile ocean swim, or biathlon (5K and swim). The Racing Festival is for serious runners, swimmers, power walkers, and those who just want to dress like a diva and sashay!
Prizes will be given to the top overall finishers, as well as the top three finishers in multiple age groups. Immediately following the racing, the always popular Post Party will be held at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center at 37 Baltimore Avenue. From Bloody Marys and draft beer to coffee, bagels, fruit, sweets, and more, admission is free to race participants and just $5 for others.
The Racing Festival serves as the official kick-off to Sundance Week, CAMP Rehoboth’s annual Labor Day Weekend benefit. In 2015 CAMP Rehoboth is celebrating its 25th Anniversary as a nonprofit, community service organization dedicated to creating a more positive environment in Rehoboth Beach and its surrounding communities.To register on-line, go to seashorestriders.com.

Gossett and Kuhns Win City Election
In the recent Rehoboth Beach City Commissioner’s election, Patrick Gossett and Paul Kuhns edged out the competition to fill the two available seats. Kuhns garnered the most votes, with Gossett coming in just a few votes behind him. Though both men come to the job with different views on what needs to be done, they each are deeply dedicated to Rehoboth and committed to making sure that it continues to be a great place to live and vacation.
