The Wilmington area has quite a storied history with liquor, legal and otherwise. During the War of 1812, Wilmington supplied good rye whiskey to the American troops at the Battle of Plattsburgh as part of their daily ration. During prohibition with its proximity to Canada, Wilmington residents provided temporary haven for bootleggers crossing the border, and to this day, Wilmington is home to US Barrel, the oldest whiskey barrel cooperage in the Northeast.
Following the race is the awards ceremony with food available for purchase at Festival Field. Run participants will receive a t-shirt, a “swag bag” filled with quality local goods, and a totally unique finishers medal.
