I'm heading to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in October!!! HOLLAAAHHHHH!!
But why am I going there?
The Runner's World Half & Festival baby - October 17-19! Woo!
How did I get so lucky?
How could I not with such lovely gems like the one above? ;)
The prize? An invitation to the Runner's World Half & Festival in October. YAY!!
That’s me hugging the Runner’s World PR folks as a Thank You
You know I gave Runner's World a big Hell Yeah that I would be there. This will be my first time at the Runner's World Festival.
What will the Festival/courses include?
The racecourses feature Bethlehem's historic neighborhoods, including some of the town's original 1741 settlement, two renowned colleges, Lehigh University and Moravian College, and the former Bethlehem Steel complex–where the backbone of the nation was literally forged.
The festival weekend next year will include:
- Live music
- Running films
- Prerace dinner with Runner's World editors
- Kids races and children's programming (Saturday)
- 5K and 10K races (Saturday)
- Dog run (Saturday)
- Half marathon (Sunday)
Now I watched the kids races and dog run in June at Heartbreak Hill Festival and they were ADORABLE and MOTIVATING! I highly recommend checking both out.
But, we are really going for the running, right?
Here's the sked:
Saturday, October 18 5k – 8am 10k – 9:30am
Sunday, October 19 Half Marathon – 8am
So who is up for a challenge or two? Runner’s World has your back. You can take your pick from:
**The Five & Dime, where you take on the back-to-back 5k and 10k on Saturday
**The Hat Trick, where you tackle the 5k, the 10k and come back on Sunday for a little Half Marathon
Can you all guess which one I am taking on? Yeah you all know me and my love of bling … so Hat Trick it is.
Oh did I forget to mention the bling? Yes, each race includes a sweet little Finisher’s medal. Calling all bling lovers!!
