The Runner’s World Half-Marathon & Running-Festival


The Runner’s World Half & Festival | October 14 – 16, 2016 | Bethlehem, PA

Runner’s World is pleased to kick off the 5th annual Runner’s World Half & Festival in our own backyard—Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The festival weekend includes a 5K, 10K, half marathon, trail run, kids races, seminars, live music, and the return of the Hat Trick!
The racecourses feature Bethlehem’s historic neighborhoods, including some of the town’s original 1741 settlement; two renowned colleges (Lehigh University and Moravian College); and the former Bethlehem Steel complex, where the backbone of the nation was literally forged.
The festival weekend will include:

  • Seminars
  • Live music
  • Pre-race dinner with Runner’s World editors
  • Pop-up workouts and recovery yoga
  • ALTRA 3.8 mile Trail Run (Friday)
  • FREE kids races, children’s programming (Friday)
  • FREE 1 mile dog run (Saturday)
  • 5-K and 10-K races (Saturday)
  • Half-marathon (Sunday)

And if that’s not enough for you, take on our multiple-race options: the Hat Trick (5K, 10K, and half marathon) or the Five & Dime (5K and 10K). Once again, headquarters for the weekend will be on the grounds of the beautifully refurbished Bethlehem Steel Mill and ArtsQuest SteelStacks campus.
