Need motivation? Sign up to walk a half marathon!

13.1 miles may seem impossible now, but you can do it! And I have the perfect event for you!

The Delaware & Lehigh Heritage Half Marathon is one of the MOST walker-friendly events in the country. For five years now, they have been encouraging and welcoming walkers–of all levels–to race along with runners to 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. And there will be training plans for all levels to help you safely build your mileage and prepare for race day.

Here’s the 2019 D&L beginner 20 week training plan for those who are just starting to walk for exercise. You’ll begin with just 10 minutes a day. Training starts June 16th.

Additional training plans for regular walkers and for those who want to increase their speed will be posted in July and August.

And register for the half marathon before Aug 1st to beat a price increase!

Happy walking!
