Ten Sisters of Dewey Beach kicks off May 30

Summer is quickly approaching and the 14th annual Ten Sisters of Dewey Beach Running Series will begin Monday, May 30, and end with the 40th annual Bottle and Cork 10-Miler. For the runners who have "been around a few years,” the Cork marks a great end to the summer season and fond memories from many years past.

Wayne Kursh, race director for Races2Run, says, "This year’s events will be the best ones yet! This is our 14th year for the fun and exciting racing series sponsored by the Highway One Group. Proceeds from many of the races go to local charities, such as Sussex Consortium, the Dewey Beach lifeguards and other worthwhile organizations.”

New for 2016 will be the 10 Sisters Championship Point Series. Everyone is eligible to compete. Points will be awarded to the top 5 places in each age group for each race. Series runners who place in the most number of runs have a greater chance to be the champion in their age category. More details can be found at

Go to the website to check out the dates and times for each race. Folks may register for one or all 10 races. Beach house or family teams are also invited to participate. Team rules are on the website or contact Barb Kursh at or at 302-521-0134 for more information. If runners participate in all the races they will receive prizes, such as 10 Sisters awards, running attire and a free pass for the New Year’s Eve 2016 event at the Rusty Rudder.
