Register your child for the race to be held at halftime of the men’s basketball game on vs UNCW

The University of Delaware will host the second annual Baby Race presented by St. Francis Healthcare during halftime of the men’s basketball game on Sunday, Jan. 7 between the Blue Hens and the University of North Carolina - Wilmington.

The race is open to all babies between 6-12 months old and the baby must be able to crawl. No baby will be allowed to participate if they are able to walk. Two individuals must escort the baby to the floor and are encouraged to bring any toys with them to encourage the baby along the race. Click here to watch last year’s inaugural Baby Race.

The race will last three minutes and the first baby to cross the finish line will win the race. If no baby has successfully crossed the finish line after three minutes, then the baby who has crawled the farthest will be the winner.

All babies must be dressed in soft clothes and athletic shoes or other soft soled shoes. No hard boots can be worn while racing.

Each contestant will be given two tickets to the game that will be at the will call window of the ticket office on the day of the game.

There will only be 15 babies in the race, so register your baby now by clicking here. You will be notified at a later date if you have been selected to participate in the race. Please e-mail BlueHensMarketing@udel.edu with any questions.
