The Delaware & Lehigh Heritage Half Marathon–in its seventh year–is a 5-star, walker-friendly event! With 4.5 hours to complete the 13.1 mile course, it is a great half marathon for beginners and first timers. For avid walkers and experienced half marathoners, there are age-group awards to vie for winning. The half is on November 5th, but don’t wait to register! Last year’s event filled early!
