D&L Trail Challenge

Delaware & Lehigh - D&L Trail Challenge

Take the challenge of giving back

NEW, this year, the D&L Trail Challenge challenges walkers, runners and cyclists to shred through half marathon increments to raise money for the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, our programming, and the D&L Trail. In lieu of our 2020 D&L Heritage Half Marathon, the D&L Trail Challenge is our BIGGEST fundraiser, with 100% of the proceeds from the challenge supporting us as a 501c3 non-profit.

Challenge Details

This new event will challenge runners and walkers to complete at least four cumulative half-marathon (13.1-mile) distances. Cyclists, in turn, are challenged to complete at least four full-marathon (26.2-mile) distances. Miles can be accrued over several workouts, on the 165-mile D&L Trail or somewhere else, any time between October 1 and November 1. You select where, when, and how, then register your miles easily on RunSignup’s website.

A real-time Leader Board will engage your competitiveness, you can race against a personal mileage goal or you can simply participate for fun and fitness. Runners and walkers who cumulatively complete four half marathons, and cyclists who cumulatively complete four full marathons, during the month of October, will conquer the challenge and receive specially made finishers’ medals mailed to their homes.

  • A custom gaiter
  • Participants who conquer the challenge will receive the finisher’s medal
  • A D&L sticker and run/walk/bike sticker
  • Virtual stickers for every half marathon or marathon completed, so you can proudly display your accomplishments on social media and encourage others to up their games
  • Entry into an exclusive Facebook group to share tips and cheer on friendly competition
  • Local and on-line coupons
  • You can also purchase the deluxe SWAG add-on for $25.

Please help us promote the challenge with your friends by inviting them to join you and/or compete against you while helping the trail. Registration closes on October 15, so your friends can sign up even after the challenge has begun.
