Delco RRC at 2018 PHL Marathon by Byron Mundy

Cloud covered skies, moderate temps, and very little wind were great conditions for 9509 finishers of the 2018 Philadelphia Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 18. Many thanks go to club president and water stop organizer Terry Adamson, and the 100 volunteers who worked the Delco RRC water stop at the 15.7 mile and 24.6 mile points (out and back) on Kelly Drive.
