Monster Mash Marathon starts at 7 a.m. Oct. 19.

You may not see Frankenstein stumbling down Route 13, but runners will take over Dover Saturday, Oct. 19 for the Monster Mash Marathon and Half Marathon.

The race starts inside the Monster Mile race track at the Dover International Speedway, then takes runners through downtown Dover, Little Creek and Port Mahon. Runners greet Miles the Monster once more as they cross the finish line at the speedway.

Delaware Department of Transportation warns drivers to watch out for runners and expect traffic delays on Route 13 at Leipsic, Route 13 at Route 8, downtown Dover, Route 9 and Little Creek between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Anyone interested in running in the marathon or half marathon can still sign up. Runners will pick up their packets at the Miles the Monster statue Friday 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. or Saturday 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m.
