The Delaware Distance Classic is a 15-kilometer road race held in October near Wilmington, Delaware. It is the event of the year for the Pike Creek Valley Running Club (PCVRC). The course has rotated every few years based on sponsorship. The event began in 1983 as a fund raiser for the PCVRC but the Special Olympics has been the beneficiary for the last few years.
Famous quotes containing the words classic and/or distance:
“It could be said that the AIDS pandemic is a classic own-goal scored by the human race against itself.”
“1946: I go to graduate school at Tulane in order to get distance from a possessive mother. I see a lot of a red-haired girl named Maude-Ellen. My mother asks one day: Does Maude-Ellen have warts? Every girl Ive known named Maude-Ellen has had warts. Right: Maude-Ellen had warts.”
—Bill Bouke (20th century)
