D&H Half-Marathon


THE D&H DISTANCE RUN HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR SEPT. 10TH 2017 – The race re-route is going to involve many complications related to liability, road closures, PA DOT permits and signage regulations, special insurance, additional fire police, ETC.

And because there are also concerns regarding runners safety RTC has decided to cancel the race this year only. Please email us with any questions or concerns @ trails@nep.net. For those of you who have registered already, you will be receiving an email detailing reimbursement options. 

We’d like to thank everyone for their patience and ongoing support for this event and we hope to see you in 2018!
