For those of you who do not know what Runner’s World is, it is a magazine that is well read in the running community that talks about many things related to running. Such as diet, ways to avoid injuries, and new types of running shoes available.
Some of the key people who write for Runner’s World are from Bethlehem, PA and they wanted to have a big race in their home city. So last year they created the Runner’s World Half and Festival which happens between Friday, October 18th and Sunday, October 20th. This is a multiple day event in which there is a kids race on Friday night, a 5k (3.1 miles) and a 10k (6.2 miles) on Saturday morning, and a half marathon (13.1 miles) on Sunday morning. There is also many other events that happen during this time. Such as movie showings and seminars. The schedule for it all can be found here: http://rw.runnersworld.com/rwhalf/schedule.html
The Lehigh University Running Club is going to be racing in the 5k, at 8 am on Saturday, and will be working as the first water station for the half marathon on Sunday.
Here is the picture of us after the race:
