Join the Seashore Striders for one of our longest running events at the shore- the Masser 5 Miler.   Kicking off the popular Seashore Strider Championship Series, this year's Masser 5 miler will be a 'live" event.  The Masser 5 miler is named after one of the founders of the Summer Championship Series, the Late Dr. Lee Masser of Crofton, MD.  The Masser 5 miler is a flat & fast course run mostly on bike trails through the Town of Lewes with little traffic.  The race will start and finish at Cape Henlopen High School in Lewes inside Legends Stadium.  Come celebrate what Doc Masser has done for Running & Racing at the Beach and join the Striders for the Masser 5 miler.

COURSE ETIQUETTE



ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO RUN ON THE COURSE THAT IS MARKED WITH ARROWS AND CONES .  



PLEASE STAY ON THE ROAD WHERE IT IS MARKED AND POLICE ARE STATIONED



DO NOT RACE ON THE SIDEWALK , RUN THROUGH PRIVATE PROPERTY , OR RUN ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE ROAD .   IN MOST CASES YOU SHOULD BE RACING WITH TRAFFIC .   ( FOR EXAMPLE , IF THE COURSE IS MARKED WITH ARROWS & CONES SO RUNNERS ARE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF WILMINGTON AND CHRISTIAN STREETS , THEN NO RUNNER SHOULD BE ON THE LEFT SIDE FACING TRAFFIC ).  ALSO, WHEN THE RACE IS DIRECTED AROUND A CONE OR CONES , FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN CUTTING THE COURSE .



FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE RACE INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN A DISQUALIFICATION FROM THE EVENT .   THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION IN THIS MATTER .   RACE DIRECTOR TIM -SS



SEASHORE STRIDER COURSE GUIDELINES :  THE FOLLOWING ARE NOT ALLOWED IN A SEASHORE STRIDER EVENT … THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL PARTICIPANTS …RD TIM -SS

BIKES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE ON THE COURSE RIDING ALONG / PACING ANY REGISTERED RUNNER

 



BANDITS ( NON REGISTERED ) RUNNERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE IN THE RACE RUNNING ALONG / PACING ANY REGISTERED RUNNER



HEADPHONES / EAR PODS ARE DISCOURAGED WEARING IN BOTH EARS DUE TO SAFETY OF HEARING TRAFFIC



THIS IS A TOUGH RULE TO ENFORCE AS 85% OF RUNNERS IN RACES LISTEN TO MUSIC AND THE RRCA RECOGNIZED THAT AND MOVED THE ENFORCEMENT FROM A DISQUALIFICATION TO MAKING IT THE RACE DIRECTORS DECISION .   MOST RACE DIRECTORS IN THE COUNTRY EITHER IGNORE THE ISSUE OR TRY TO WORK WITH THE RUNNERS .   MY STAND AS A RACE DIRECTOR IS TO ASK YOU TO NOT WEAR THEM AND IF YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST THEN ONLY WEAR THEM IN ONE EAR AND AT A LOW VOLUME LEVEL .   







SAFE RUNNING & RACING : .  The Seashore Striders encourage you to run & race safely during the Masser 5 Miler and discourage the gathering of runners for this event.   Please stay more than 6' from each other if running with someone.   https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a31439358/running-during-coronavirus/
