TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

With conditions colder and wetter than they would have liked, hundreds took to the streets of Wilmington on Sunday to run 13.1 miles in the Caesar Rodney Half Marathon — the oldest such race in the country. The much anticipated run is considered a great precursor to full marathons in April and May.

For the second year in a row, 26-year-old Nate Alter from Pennsylvania had the fastest time overall with a 1:11:30 finish. And Rochelle Sceats-Basil, who saw this as an opportunity to prep for the Boston Marathon, topped the list of female runners with a time of 1:20:13.

The challenging second half of the CR race, “the hills are no joke!” may have made the difference for one Wilmington runner who hoped to land first place among women for the third time in a row. Elizabeth Swierzbinski fell just short landing in second place among women with a time of 1:21:12.

The running festival, which included the half-marathon, a 5K and a relay, benefitted the American Lung Association of Delaware.
