Get Your Tail on the Trail
Get Your Tail on the Trail is a free community initiative brought to you by St. Luke’s University Health Network and Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L) to encourage healthy lifestyles right here in Lehigh Valley.
Individuals, families, and employee or community groups are encouraged to log miles walking, running, biking, and more in order to receive great prizes during challenge periods. Whether enjoying nature and history along the nearly continuous 165-mile D&L Trail, walking while on vacation, bicycling in your neighborhood, paddling on local waterways, or jogging on the gym treadmill when weather forces you indoors, every mile of exercise counts!
Tail on the Trail holds regular challenges throughout the year to help encourage participants to get active and set good exercise habits year round. Since 2013, the two main challenges have been the 30/30 Winter Challenge and 165 Mile Challenge.
- The 30/30 Winter Challenge is often held around February and challenges participants to log 30 miles in 30 days to keep fit. Need some extra motivation to keep those New Years resolutions active? Going stir crazy inside during the winter? The 30/30 Winter Challenge is meant to help get you outside enjoying the special activities that old man winter provides like snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, winter bird watching and more.
- The 165 Mile Challenge is normally held from May 1 to November 1 and highlights the fact that the D&L Trail route from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol will provide over 165 miles of trail when complete. Participants are encouraged to log 165 miles (or more) from May to November in order to maintain healthy exercise habits, find new trail sections to explore, and witness nature and history along the way.
