Run, White & Blue 5K and 1-mile walk attracts 340 athletes

Georgetown Owens Campus a beautiful space for a race
September 15, 2021

A total of 340 5K runners and 1-mile walkers came out into the waning rain Sept. 9 at Delaware Tech Owens Campus in Georgetown to participate in the 8th annual Run, White and Blue race. 

Janelle Boyer is the event organizer on the Delaware Tech side, while Tim Bamforth of Seashore Striders is the race director.  

The Delaware Tech men’s and women’s cross country teams participated, as did Indian River field hockey, and Milford and Sussex Central cross country. 

Tyler Muse won the race easily in 17:36, then ran the course twice more as a warm-down, beating some runners three times in a 3.1-mile race. 

Unlike weekend races in Dewey Beach that draw vacationers from states across the U.S., the Thursday night race in Georgetown was 95 percent Delaware runners.

Faith Mitchell, 15, was 21st overall and first woman to finish, with a time of 22:19. Matt Sparacino, 43, was the male masters winner in 18:35, and Kathy Kay, 51, won the female masters in 23:35.
