The Delaware Charity Challenge is a unique fundraising and athletic competition designed to give organizations, families, and individuals a fun way to raise money and awareness for their favorite causes. Teams that enter may designate any charity they want as a beneficiary of funds they raise as a team. Part of the proceeds from the race registrations and the race sponsorships will go into a prize pool that will be distributed among the charities that raise the most money and to the charities of the teams that win the individual race events on the day of the Delaware Charity Challenge.  


2016 5K Registration Costs

Registration is affordable for all teams and nonprofits.

Team registration for the Delaware Charity Challenge is pretty straightforward. For most teams, it's $40 or $45/runner depending on when they register. For non-profit teams, it's $35 or $40/runner depending on when they register.  The registration process is being handled online through Eventbrite and CrowdRise, although paper registrations/checks can also be mailed. The below information shows the registration fees for the 2016 Delaware Charity Challenge 5K and Adventure Challenge Relay and will be updated later this spring as details about the Adventure Challenge Relay are finalized.

Registration costs cover your race entry and t-shirts, and a portion of your registration fee (10%) goes toward the prize pool. If you would like to participate as a virtual team (meaning you will not actually be in Delaware and/or participate in the Delaware Charity Challenge that day), a team can be created for $25, which would allow you to still use the race as a fundraiser for your charity. Virtual teams, however, will not be eligible for any prizes as part of the Delaware Charity Challenge competition. Please note: If you do not have a state parks parking pass, Brandywine Creek charges $4 or $8 for parking (depending on whether you have Delaware license plate or not). Unfortunately for 2016, all drivers into Brandywine Creek on April 30 will be required to pay their own entry fees. We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you are planning to put together large teams (more than 10 runners), you may want to consider becoming a sponsor of the Delaware Charity Challenge. There is a sponsorship level for companies of all sizes. Most of the sponsorships include race entries and it is easy to have additional team members join your team.

If you are interested in helping as a volunteer for the Delaware Charity Challenge, please contact us. There is a minimal cost for volunteers ($15), which covers your t-shirt.
