From the starting line on Daly Avenue and Stefko Boulevard, next to the South Bethlehem Greenway trail, runners start the half marathon heading west into town, and follow the first couple of miles as they wind through the campus of Lehigh University. The organizers at the magazine describe the course as “challenging” with five main hills along the route, most of which take place in the first half of the race — after about mile 7, the race is mostly downhill.
