The ISLANDS Tour!!!

Calling all Watermen and Waterwomen! Behold... The Islands Tour! The Islands Tour is a running tour of 12 different running routes on the islands of Delmarva with 12 different distances. We have created this epic adventure for you and your friends to run (or walk) throughout June, July, AUGUST... and SEPTEMBER That's right FOUR Months to drive, sail or ferry to running destinations.

This is a chance for you and your friends to run, compete and explore during the summer and early fall.

So how does this work? To participate in the event you do not need Strava, however, to compete for a podium spot (top 3) for a leg or for the entire event you WILL need to use Strava. We will be checking and verifying Strava for the top five men and women for each leg throughout the event. Those not competing for a podium spot can use a different GPS-enabled running app. Once a leg has been run, runners will enter the time it took you to run the leg and a screenshot of the run on the website The screenshot will have to include the GPS map, running time, actual time, and the date. Runners are free to rerun a route for a better time within the four month period. So you run the actual routes on your own (or with a friend) and you compete with others participating. LEGS MUST BE ENTERED Within 24 hours of their completion for competitive reasons. Runs should not be held for days, weeks, or months in someone’s Strava back pocket. Runs can be completed on any day at any time between June and September. Legs can also be run in any order that a runner desires and as many times as a runner desires. Awards will be given to the top three men and women based on the overall time of the combined 12 legs of the event. Individual leg winners will also be recognized.

All participants will receive an event shirt and, if the runner completes the tour, a Watermans’ award. The event starts at 12:00am on Saturday June 1st 2024 and ends at 11:59pm on Monday September 30th 2024. All runs must be entered by September 30th at 11:59pm.
