Runners follow a very gradual downhill point-to-point course for the half marathon at Allentown’s Lehigh Valley Health Network Marathon for Via, designed by Runner’s World’s Bart Yasso. The 13.1-mile course starts at the midway point of the full marathon in Bethlehem, which lies about mid-way between Allentown and Easton along the river. From there, runners follow a winding route along the trails that parallel the river to the finish line at the park.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
