You’ll complete the same half marathon course at your walking pace and receive the same swag and amenities as the runners. We have set a walking time limit of 4.5 hours to minimize congestion on the trail with the marathoners coming from Allentown. And we will have a 4.5-hour pacer. However, if you need a bit more time, the course will remain open for the marathoners. 

Please note: if you plan to run any of the race – even the final steps to cross the finish line – please enter the run/walk category. Enter the walk category only if you commit to walking every step of the half marathon, meaning one fit is touching the ground at all times.

Enjoy river views, historic structures, and plenty of natural vistas along the way.

The point-to-point USATF-certified half marathon course starts on beautiful Main Street in historic downtown Bethlehem and heads south to Sand Island. You pick up the D&L Trail at about .6 mile and take it all the way into Easton, where you will finish at Scott Park. It’s a flat (actually, very gentle downhill) course with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the timeless beauty of the Lehigh River during late fall.

The race starts at 7:30 a.m. in Downtown Bethlehem. We will have a half marathon field limit of 1,250 racers. Don’t get shut out!

You must be 14 years of age or older to participate. Under 18 years must have parent or guardian permission.
