Running Routes

We are visiting Dewey Beach in a few weekends for a wedding and I will need to run about 8-10 miles one morning that we are there. Can anyone recommend a good running route? I was thinking of running up Rt 1 to Rt 1a and then into Rehobeth? Any other recommendations or suggestions???

From Dewey I would recommend running south on Rt 1 towards Indian River Inlet. The inlet is about 5 1/2 miles from Dewey. It is all dunes and bay view once you get below the expensive housing. Should be quite a nice run. There's plenty of shoulder and a bike lane both ways. You'll run past Delaware Seashore state park beaches and the old coast watch towers from WWII. Here's a view

I hope the OP took the advice and toward Indian River and Seashore State Park . I do everything I can to discourage running ,walking or biking along RT 1 or RT1A in the Rehoboth /Lewes area. It is dangerous.
