in Running Life by

I’m super excited to be part of the 2017 Runner’s World Half Run Crew!

Join Me at the Runner's World Half & Festival!

Starting on October 20 running through the 22, Runner’s World will once again host its Runner’s World Half and Festival in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania – just miles away from its Emmaus headquarters.

What does this mean for me?

Well, as part of the Run Crew I get free entry to any of the races and the weekend festival. I’ve been hearing about this events for a few years and have always wanted to participate in it (while I’m not getting paid for this, as I said, it is free for me).

What does it mean for you?

It means that you have a chance to win a free entry to the races! Not just the races, but all the events over the entire weekend (and if you don’t win a 10% discount on all events for the entire weekend)!

The runs include

  • The Altra 3.8-Mile Trail Run
  • Runner’s World 5K
  • Runner’s World 10K
  • Runner’s World Half
  • Runner’s World 1-Mile Dog Run – yup, you read that right!
  • And a variety of kids runs from 1/4 to a full mile

So, are you interested in The Five & Dime (5K & 10K), The Hat Trick (5K, 10K, and Half), or The Grand Slam 26.2 Weekend Marathon.

Guess which races I’m running? I’ll give you a hint, since this is so close to the TCS NYC Marathon I’ll need to run as many miles that weekend as I can.

The Festival/Events

If that wasn’t enough, there events all weekend long.

From meet and greets with Bart Yasso and Ryan & Sarah Hall, to seminars on running technique, running safety (including special women’s safety issues), running gear and more!

Have you ever attended a running festival?


  1. This would be so much fun. I’ve never attended a festival like this although a have done a 3 race over 2 day event!

  2. I’ve run the Gasparilla festival with all 4 races. It was a great time and very challenging! I’ve heard wonderful things about this race and would love to run it!
