Conquer The 2013 LU Marathon!

What is the LU Marathon?
The LU Marathon is a wellness program sponsored by Human Resources and Campus Athletics designed to encourage members of the Lehigh community to start a walking program. 

What Do I Do To Join In?
All you have to do is register, then run or walk 26.2 miles in a two-week period from May 5 through May 18, 2013. While this may be broken up into a morning walk and an afternoon walk, for maximum aerobic benefit, it is important to walk at least 20 minutes per day.

Where will the Marathon take place?
You can walk or run anywhere - on campus, at home, in a park, on a treadmill, or any other place. Wherever you choose to walk or run, it is important that you measure the distance so that you may record actual mileage. 

What is the registration fee?
The registration fee is $10 per person. 

How do I register?
Go to the Lehigh HR Training Tool to register. Once you’ve signed up, a complete registration packet will be sent to you. 

Contact Mary Jo McNulty at extension 83894 or mjd4@lehigh.edu.
