Description

In response to COVID-19, the Rehoboth Beach Fire Company has modified our annual 5K in partnership with Tim Bamforth of the Seashore Striders. To continue to practice social distancing and safety measures we are holding our 6th annual 5K as a virtual 5k. It’s important to our company that we all stay safe, stay healthy and stay connected. Through Seashore Striders virtual 5K we can do all of those!
