Four fantastic races. One inspirational day.
On November 12, 2023, the St. Luke’s D&L RaceFest will brought four signature events to the Lehigh Valley: the St. Luke’s D&L Marathon, the St. Luke’s D&L Marathon Relay, the D&L Heritage Half Marathon Run presented by St. Luke’s, and the D&L Heritage Half Marathon Walk presented by St. Luke’s. See a Google map of the routes.
We are grateful to welcome our title sponsor St. Luke’s University Health Network as an advocate for trails and a champion of wellness across our region.
We took the best parts of the former St. Luke’s Via Marathon and Marathon Relay, made some upgrades and moved it to the crisp November weather, while retaining the November tradition of the D&L Heritage Half Marathon Run and Walk. We engaged nationally recognized race management firm DMSE Sports, organizers of the Boston Marathon and other high-profile races, to ensure a world-class experience for participants.
Race proceeds benefit the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor Inc., a 501(c)3, for heritage and environmental programming as well as the ongoing development and promotion of the D&L Trail. Participation in this event (and following) will move the D&L Trail toward becoming the longest multi-use trail in Pennsylvania, stretching over 165 miles from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol.
