What is the Half & Half 26.2?
This is a combined event in which participants run the St. Luke’s Half Marathon in Allentown, PA in April 2017 and the Runner’s World Half and Festival in Bethlehem, PA in October 2017 and receive a combined marathon time.

How will it be scored?
Participants’ finish time at the St. Luke’s Half Marathon will be added to the Runner’s World Half finish time to determine your Half & Half 26.2 time! Participant “marathon” times will be scored and posted by Runner’s World  at http://rw.runnersworld.com/rwhalf.

What if you want to run the Hat Trick?
Runner’s World will be offering an “upgrade” once 2017 Runner’s World Half and Festival registration opens in October. Please register for the Half & Half and then e-mail Lori Adams at Lori.Adams@rodale.com for details on how to upgrade.
