In-Person D&L Heritage Half Marathon:

We’re excited to announce the in-person D&L Heritage Half Marathon Run & Walk for 2023! We look forward to being together again on Sunday, November 12, to celebrate 11 years of this tradition and the top D&L fundraiser.

The race committee is also hard at work developing ways to host a fun and safe race. The health of participants, volunteers, and the D&L community will always be our top priority.

Our half marathon is a fitting tribute to our history on the trails and to our health and solidarity today.

You can keep up with us and our plans online here, or on Facebook.

More information and link to register is in the menu above.

Virtual D&L Trail Challenge:

The virtual D&L Trail Challenge encourages runners, walkers, and cyclists to log miles during the month of October. There are two levels to choose from: The basic level will challenge runners and walkers to complete at least four cumulative half-marathon (13.1-mile) distances, a total of 52.4 miles, and challenge cyclists to complete at least four full-marathon (26.2-mile) distances, a total of 104.8 miles.

The super level challenges avid runners and walkers to complete the length of the D&L Trail (165 miles) and challenges avid cyclists to complete two lengths of the D&L Trail (330 miles). You can accrue the miles anywhere, anytime; they don’t have to be on the D&L Trail itself. A virtual leaderboard and Facebook groups will help you to stay motivated. The virtual challenge can complement your training for those doing the in-person D&L Half Marathon on November 12. Or enjoy the Challenge on its own.

More details available by clicking Trail Challenge in the menu above or CLICK HERE FOR REGISTRATION PAGE.

In the event that government or public health officials prohibit us from holding the in-person D&L Heritage Half Marathon, you will have the opportunity to select from three options:

  1. Participate in the virtual 2023 D&L Trail Challenge instead
  2. Donate your registration fee to the D&L National Heritage Corridor, which supports beautiful trails enjoyed year-round by residents and visitors
  3. Defer your registration to the 2024 in-person race
