The inaugural Lehigh versus Lafayette 15 mile Challenge is a one of a kind event that will be an individual challenge with a team twist! The run will begin on Lafayette campus in Easton and end up blocks away from Lehigh in the south side of Bethlehem, PA. During registration, runners will pick a side to support – whether it is your alma mater, a family tradition or you just like brown better than maroon or leopards more than mountain hawks…pick your side. All runners are automatically entered into the challenge….the team with the most runners in the top 50% of finishers will earn an extra award! After the Lafayette campus start – the course will travel through Easton by starting on Bushkill Drive to 4th Street and landing on Lehigh Drive. Runners will take Lehigh Drive to Riverside Park and pick up the D&L trail for the bulk of their trek to Bethlehem. In Bethlehem, runners will reach sand island and loop around to cross the Fahy Bridge into the South Side of Bethlehem. Off the bridge, runners will take the ramp to loop back down for a finish on First Street.
