This Kick-Ass October Race is Still Open for Registration

By Heather Mayer Irvine

The Lehigh Valley is home to hundreds of miles trails (including the 165-mile long Delaware and Lehigh Canal Trail) and dozens of parks, with no shortage of local races, ranging from mile fun runs to full marathons. 

Runner's World magazine (based in Emmaus) will host its sixth annual Runner's World Half Marathon Festival in Bethlehem on October 20-22. It's currently open for registration and early-bird prices are good until August 30. Not ready to run 13.1 miles just yet? Runner's World has you covered with other running events that weekend, including kids races, a 3.8 trail run, 1-mile dog run, and a 5K and 10K. 

The weekend is full of non-running events as well, including seminars with the editors and experts, and a pasta dinner. Check out all the details here
