Stumpy's XI

The one and only world famous Stumpy's Marathon, hosted by the one and only world famous Stumpy, is almost upon us. The 2012 edition will take place -- when else? -- the first Sunday after Labor Day, this year on Sunday, September 9, 2012.

And, to all those Stumpy's veterans dumb enough to come back yet again, please note: the race has a NEW start and finish location!

And please note the leisurely late start time: 8:00 am!

For 2012, Stumpy's Marathon will start and finish at the main parking lot of New Castle County’s Paper Mill Park, at the intersection of Polly Drummond Hill Road and Paper Mill Road, just north of Newark, DE. Other than that, the course will be pretty similar to most previous years. It spans 3 parks and 2 states, including gently undulating hills, several creek crossings, educational historic markers, single track trail, dirt/gravel roads, and a few level stretches.
