DISTANCE: 13.1 miles and 3.1 miles
Both courses begin at W. Allen High School and end inside J. Birney Crum Stadium. The 5k course takes you along Parkway Boulevard and through Allentown’s beautiful West End District. The half marathon course is closed to traffic and runners can enjoy more than a dozen live bands on the half marathon route. The course takes you through several Allentown parks including the Lehigh Parkway, which Runner’s World magazine has listed as one of the top 100 places to run in the country.
All entrants receive personalized bibs, a results booklet, a quality long sleeve or short sleeve technical shirt, and free transportation to the start from major area hotels. Finishers receive a commemorative medallion.
Timing for the St. Luke’s Half Marathon & 5k is done by Queen City Timing. Results will be posted inside the stadium on race day and on the website within 2 days.
