The 3rd Annual Coastal Delaware Running Festival in April was a full-out success! Dubbed “Delaware’s Coolest Marathon” and designated by VacationRentalHomes.com, a Trip Advisor Company, as the “Best Marathon in Delaware”, and recipient of The Runners Choice Award, the Coastal Delaware Running Festival, a Focus Muiltisports event, hosted more than 3,500 runners, thousands of fans, and dozens of volunteers. Designated a State of Delaware Championship event by the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) and a Boston Marathon qualifying race, a weekend celebration of race-related activities was fun for all who participated, and was also a fundraiser for several charities.

The most recent donation of $5,000 was made by John Wiley II, President of Peninsula Oil, to Autism Delaware. “We have been serving DelMarVa for over 80 years and it is our privilege and pleasure to give back to the community who has supported us in our business. Our five-year partnership with Focus Multisports has resulted in $20,000 for Autism Delaware to continue their great work, with hopefully more to come in the future!” said Wiley.

“At Focus Multisports, we believe in the power of philanthropy. We believe in the partnership between for-profit businesses and the non-profit sector. Our alliances strengthen local organizations and provide businesses with a platform to give back. I would say such collaborations are “win/win.” said Race Directors Ernie Felici and Rick Hundley.
