Train for a Half Marathon–4 plans!

Yes, you can walk a half marathon!

These plans will have you ready for the Nov 7th Delaware & Lehigh Heritage Half Marathon–one of the MOST walker-friendly events in the country! (But you can use them for any half marathon that you’d like to do.) For six years now, the D&L Half has been encouraging and welcoming walkers–of all levels–to race along with runners and experience the thrill of crossing the finish line of a half marathon!

The D&L Half has a 4.5 hour time limit (that’s a 20-minute mile pace), and there will be pace groups for walkers. Whether you’re simply looking to finish in the allotted time or hoping to set a PR, our enthusiastic pacers will help you stay on track. The fastest walkers overall and in each age group will also receive awards.

Here are the plans so you can start training and join the fun!
