Race Start 2023 Tyler Arboretum 10K Trail Run

The 2023 Tyler Trail Run, presented by the Delco Road Runners Club, was wet and wild, with true trail runners showing up to compete, regardless of conditions. Female champion Rachel Wise of North Wales (52:19) and Brian Wiest of Wallingford (41:07) led the field into intermittent rain. This year’s course was revised with a new, long stretch in and out of the Tyler Arboretum meadows, allowing the runners to check their competition, and fans and family to watch multiple turns. So many great stories, like young Lincoln Narvaez from Wilmington (45:07, 13 years old, 4th overall!) and Jeffrey James from Quakertown (46:28, 51, 9th overall) and the dozens of other age group racers who outdid themselves across the creeks and rocky trails. Dozens of Delco RRC volunteers nailed down the details and kept everyone on course. See race results and photos at
