Run, Walk, Swim, or Sashay the Sundance Land & Sea Racing Festival
This run-walk-swim event includes a fun run, walk, and a traditional biathlon plus a chance to sashay all around town.
Organized by the Seashore Striders to benefit CAMP Rehoboth, this event on Sunday, August 26, includes a 5K run, a one-mile walk, and a half-mile swim. Participants in the biathlon do the half-mile swim and the 5K run.
Registration begins at 7 a.m. at the Rehoboth Bandstand, the race starts at 8 a.m., and there is an after-party at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center with Bloody Marys, craft beer, and food.
Not only are there prizes in all events, but true to CAMP Rehoboth’s campy tradition, there are prizes for best costumes.
Registration is open now at seashorestriders.com. Pre-registration for the run, walk, or swim is discounted—to $35—before August 15; race weekend, registration is $45.
Biathlon registration is $40 before August 15; after August 15, it’s $45.
For supporters wanting to stay in bed, dream about running, and avoid sweating, there’s the Sleepwalker option. Contributions of $30 for CAMP Rehoboth permit sleepwalkers to stay home, or come out and cheer the participants, and come to the after party. And they get a t-shirt, too!
