Select a starting location and run from bar to bar – collect tickets at each participating location to increase your chances at prize raffles and meet back up with everyone for an after party! This isn’t a timed event – but we are sure to see some competitiveness arise. Top prizes awarded for the “best” running attire – all other prizes on random drawings.

Run Lehigh Valley was founded in 2010 with one idea in mind – fun. We strive to direct organized races that deliver a good time! We incorporate a unique element to each event whether that be by venue, course or giveaway. And oh yeah, sometimes we have beer.
Run Lehigh Valley events attract runners at all levels – beginners and competitors are welcome! We have a point system in place that gives a chance to competitive runners (points for placing) and to all runners (participating in theme, donating to charity) Top points earner receives a vacation prize!
