Boston Marathon Bus Trip

Boston Marathon 2014 is going to be a very special year.
Already several club members and local runners have registered for the race next Spring. We assure you - The Delaware Running Club is committed to continuing the tradition of organizing our annual Boston Bus Trip. A club member, Lee Kaufmann, has volunteered to take over for Doug White who has managed the trip for several years. We are thankful for everything Doug has done to make this trip go smoothly for so many of us. Information about the trip will be available soon. Lee is already reserving hotel rooms for the group. But please consider this as an exceptional way to experience Boston with many of your fellow runners.
