Have y’all smelled the mushrooms in Pennsylvania yet?! I’m a little nervous about the Mushroom Cap Half Marathon and Relay Event in Kennett Square, PA on November 2, 2019 for this very reason. It’s not a pleasant smell, but this race sounds worth it.

When I asked seasoned runner Jennifer Accord why she signed up for the race, she said this:

“This past year, I hadn’t registered because I was doing a few other races, but after the Wilmington Women’s Half (WWF) cancelled at the last minute, the Mushroom Cap team offered a $55 registration fee for those who had been registered for WWF, which was a big cut from the then $110 price. I thought it was a really thoughtful offer.”

When I asked her what she thought about the race itself, she had this to say:

“I loved the race itself. It was extremely well organized, fantastic swag, a beautiful course, the water stops had a lot of personality (they had themes and the people were so enthusiastic). It’s clear the people who put the race on really wanted to showcase Kennett Square. There were a lot of little special touches.”

I also asked her if she had any advice for me, never having run the race myself before.

“As for preparation, I knew it would be hilly, but it was hillier than I expected. I had done some hilly halfs in September, though, so that helped to prepare,” she said. This is very good to know, since here in Delaware we really don’t have many hills!

Finally, she said that the Bombas socks, love-sleeve zip up, and post-race massages were all terrific perks.

“I’m planning on signing up again on Thursday at midnight. [February 14, 2019] It’s definitely one I will do again and again.” Be on the lookout for a discount code on my Discounts page shortly for what will be one heck of a race!

    1. I’m glad you found it useful, Meredith! I’m definitely looking forward to fall races. I love the beach and nice weather, but I’m absolutely a fall/winter girl at heart!
