Register for the Delaware & Lehigh Heritage Half Marathon by Sunday (Aug. 31) before the fee goes up by $10.
This half marathon, to be held on Sunday, Nov. 2 in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, is an ideal race for walkers — and in fact is focusing on walking participants. The time limit is 4.5 hours, which is very generous and takes a lot of stress out of the event for first-timers. That time limit translates to a 20-minute-mile pace. (Info on course under picture…)
The course is beautiful and flat — the first couple of miles are in the town of Northampton, Pa., and the rest is all along the Lehigh River, surrounded by colorful fall foliage.
Just like there are usually pace runners in most half and full marathons, this race will have pace walkers to help the walking participants keep a steady stride. In fact, I will be one of the pacers!
Check out the registration info here and consider joining in the walking fun. Space is limited, so don’t delay in signing up. I hope to see you there!
