The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of being a healthy weight. “Adults with excess weight are at even greater risk during the COVID-19 pandemic”.  The 2020 CDC Adult Obesity Prevalence Maps state that Delaware has the sixth highest rate of obesity in the US with 36.5% of the population identified as obese. There are few sports teams/clubs for women in southern Delaware and no triathlon or multisport clubs. By providing opportunities for women to engage in swimming, running, biking and multisport activities, SDWMC is inspiring the women of southern Delaware to become more active and lead a healthier lifestyle.
2022 was our inaugural year and as of November 15, 2022, SDWMC has 56 dues paying club members. This has been achieved through a grassroots recruitment effort. In 2022, SDWMC offered members a running clinic with Rehoboth Beach Running Company, a fix-a-flat clinic with Breakaway Bikes, a pool swim clinic with Sussex Multisport (triathlon coaching) , an open water swim clinic, two spin classes, a transition clinic, a summer picnic and we hosted a tent in the Ironman Village at Eagleman 70.3.
