D&L Half Marathon Run and Walk - Updates


We are happy to report that as of today, the race is still on! With great optimism, we look forward to a cool, November half marathon on the D&L Trail, celebrating 10 years of this tradition and fundraiser.

In the event that government or public health officials prohibit us from holding the event, we will offer you the opportunity to participate in a virtual race, donate registration fees to the D&L National Heritage Corridor that supports beautiful trails that runners and walkers enjoy all year long, or to defer your registration for the 2021 race.

For your lowest rate, register NOW! It will add extra motivation to continue with all that extra walking and running that you’re doing during Stay-at-Home!

The race committee is hard at work identifying ways to host a race with your health in mind. The safety of our participants, volunteers, and the D&L community will always be our top priority.

In preparation for continued social distancing, we will not be offering busing from our finish line back to the start for our 2020 D&L Heritage Half Marathon.

We encourage participants to coordinate with other participants, friends, and/or family for drop-off and pick up strategies. We recognize that this is inconvenient, but we hope you can make arrangements with this long-advance notice. Moreover, this year’s post-race refreshments will be provided in a “Grab and Go” format, to avoid overcrowding.

Even though so much is unknown during this time, we still hope to make our 10th Annual D&L Heritage Half Marathon our BIGGEST ever. Reveling in what we hope will be the conclusion of the pandemic, a half marathon is a fitting celebration of our history on the trails, and our health and solidarity today.

Watch for updates in the coming months as we continue to consider race options that best address your health and safety as the current situation evolves. You can keep up with us and our plans online at race.delawareandlehigh.org, on Facebook, and via email.

Special Discount: If you are a first responder, healthcare professional, and/or essential employee on the front lines or have experienced financial hardship as a result of COVID-19 and would still like to register for the 10th D&L Heritage Half Marathon, please email us for a special discount. We are incredibly grateful for your contributions and sacrifices during this time.
