Stumpy's Marathon 2015 9/13/2015

It's Stumpy's Marathon Week!

The big day is Sunday, September 13, 2015.

This year, The Royal Stumpmeister is starting his Birthday Fun Run at Middle Run Natural Area parking lot at 8 am.  NOT at Paper Mill Park this year!

So, where is this hidden gem of a starting spot? From Google Maps, you can find it at approximately:
140 Possum Hollow Rd
Newark, DE 19711
39.714763, -75.730920

Or, for the verbal types, from the intersection of Paper Mill and Possum Park Roads, about 150 yards south on Possum Park you get on the small Possum Hollow Road (brown road signs for TriState Bird rescue) and follow it to just before the bird rescue gate, where there is a small dirt lane on the left into Middle Run.

Follow the lane as far in as you can to grab a parking space.

Please bring some runner-friendly food and/or drink to share at the aid stations! Rumor has it, probably only three aid stations, maybe also a water drop or two, so bring plenty of your own fluids to survive the day.

The maps of the route can be found at these links:
