Both runners and walkers are welcome to help support the D&L Trail’s history and future. Enjoy a race loaded with amenities including many runner and walker awards, random prizes, a delicious post-race buffet, enthusiastic volunteers, indoor facilities at the start and finish, gender-specific technical T-shirts, and so much more. Register early; the race is capped at 1,000!
Starting Line will be at the Northern Lehigh High School complex. Runners and walkers will have use of the gymnasium at Northern Lehigh High School prior to the race. Gym doors open at 6:00 a.m. Restrooms are available. Participants must be at the starting line at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the race.
Parking will be at Northern Lehigh High School; buses will transport participants and spectators back to vehicles after the race. Parking is available in Northampton at several lots within walking distance of the finish line. Look for signs and volunteers to guide you to available parking.
Training plans for runners and walkers will be provided by early summer to give you ample time to prepare for your race.
