Back by popular demand from 2020, the virtual D&L Trail Challenge will be held throughout October 2022 leading up to the in-person D&L Heritage Half Marathon Run and Walk to be held on November 6, 2022.
The D&L Trail Challenge encourages people to walk, run, and roll to shred through half marathon increments to raise money for the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, our programming, and the D&L Trail. The Half Marathon and Trail Challenge are the biggest D&L fundraisers, with 100% of the proceeds from the challenge supporting us as a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
Runners and walkers are challenged to complete at least four cumulative half-marathon (13.1-mile) distances during the month. Cyclists, in turn, are challenged to complete at least four full-marathon (26.2-mile) distances. Miles can be accrued over several workouts, on the D&L Trail or somewhere else, any time between October 1 and October 31. You select where, when, and how, then register your miles easily on RunSignup’s website.
A real-time Leader Board will engage your competitiveness, you can race against a personal mileage goal or you can simply participate for fun and fitness. Runners and walkers who cumulatively complete four half marathons, and cyclists who cumulatively complete four full marathons, during the month of October, will conquer the challenge.
The registration fee for the D&L Trail Challenge is $25. Registration includes:
If you would like to opt-in for a D&L Trail Challenge t-shirt you can do so for an additional $10. (We will do our best to make sure you receive a shirt in your chosen size. No guarantees to those registered after 9/30/2022).
And, most importantly, you’ll know that you are contributing to the important and worthwhile work of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.
Please help us promote the challenge with your friends by inviting them to join you and/or compete against you while helping the trail. Registration closes on October 8, so your friends can sign up even after the challenge has begun.
