2012: DDC 30th Anniversary

by Dave McCorquodale

For the 30th anniversary of the running of the Delaware Distance Classic, the race committee thought big. It added a 5K, which hadn't been run in conjunction with the 15K in several decades. It had an improved 15K course, which went to the Peterson Natural Area, re-certified for another ten years and had the 5K course certified as well. It went after more sponsorships and got them.

The good news is that the funds brought in by the sponsorships and the registrations, will allow the club to not only contribute to more charitable organizations, but will put Pike Creek Valley Running Club on solid financial footing for another year. PCVRC especially thanks title sponsor New Balance - Brandywine and Christiana as well as presenting sponsors M & T Bank (15K) and Tap Scene B+ Race Foundation Team (5K). Other sponsors were Foot Care Group, Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, Harvest Market, Cheskin Chiropractic, Perpetual Motion Sport, Party Pizza, Hockessin Athletic Club, Dan Weintraub, Access Labor Service, Primier Wine & Spirits and Caffe Gelato. The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation and the Mike Clark Legacy Foundation as well as other charities will receive funds.
