Doin' It For Dewey Virtual Run/Walk/Crawl

Sun April 5 - Tue May 5 Dewey Beach, DE 19971 US


Virtual Coastal Highway
Dewey Beach, DE US 19971


The COVID-19 virus is negatively affecting people all over the world including our friends in the Dewey Beach service industry.  Yes, the people that work so hard to make our summers so much fun have had their income negatively affected due to the mandatory restaurant and bar closures.  But, we CAN make a difference!!!  It's easy, it's fun and it's conducive to doing alone as you practice "social distancing."

You will “VIRTUALLY” be touring the streets of Dewey Beach passing all the establishments where our service industry friends work.  You will start by the Starboard,  run south along the bay side of Coastal Highway all the way down to Mez*Cali.  Then, cross over to the ocean side of Coastal Highway and run north all the way to Dewey Beer Co.  That is the one mile Dewey Loop. (see map below)   You could stop your "bar crawl" there or cross back over to the bay side and do the Dewey Loop again for the 2 mile...and again for the 5K!!!    YOU decide how many Dewey loops to complete based on these 3 distance options:  

Ø  5K Run - 3 fun-packed loops

Ø  2 Mile Walk - 2 scenic loops

Ø  1 Mile Crawl - 1 loop "Bar Crawl"
