Runner’s World To Bring Fall Fun to the Valley
Looking for something to fill your fall after the racing at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center has come to an end? Runner’s World has just the thing with their Half and Festival October 19-21 in Bethlehem, Pa. Along with 5k, 10k, and half marathon races, Runner’s World is offering a myriad of festivities including classic running films, lectures, and opportunities to meet the editors of the magazine.
The half course has been labeled as “challenging”. It runs throughout historic Bethlehem providing competitors with all the quintessential sights such as Lehigh University, the Moravian Book Shop, and of course, the former Bethlehem Steel Complex. The road will tilt upward at approximately miles three and five, but runners are rewarded for their efforts with a downhill run into the finish. If the 13.1 mile half marathon isn’t enough, participants can sign up for the 5k and 10k for a discounted rate and attempt to complete the hat trick by finishing all three races in one weekend. Also available is a free kids race on Saturday.
Also setting Runner’s World Half and Festival apart from other half marathons is it’s commitment to being Green Certified. The race is committed to being environmentally friendly and is encouraging athletes to car pool, use the shuttle system, ride bikes, and bring their own refillable bottles in an effort to decrease their carbon footprint. The race has scaled back on physical materials and print materials as well as added on-site composting and recycling and put into effect a no-Styrofoam policy.
