2013 Half Marathon and 5k Results

2012 Half Marathon and 5k Results


  • I've never run at night, do I have anything to be concerned about? We will have bike roamers on the course until the last runner finishes. The entire course is either on the sidewalk or a paved trail, no off-road paths. All runners are required to wear a headlamp or carry a flashlight. We will have lights on various places throughout the course. There are a few dark areas of the course but you will be very safe. 
  • Is there water on the course? We will have water station on the 5k course (that you pass twice) and 5 water stations on the half marathon course, 2 of them you pass twice (7 opportunities for water or gatorade). The water station that is about half-way for the half marathon course will also have GU for runners.  
  • Will there be pre-race packet pick up? Yes, we will have packet pick up on Friday, December 19th. Time and place TBD. 
  • What time should I arrive on race day? You should always allow extra time to deal with traffic, parking, warming up, bathroom trips, etc. We recommend you arrive at least one hour in advance. 
  • Will there be bag drop available? No. Since the parking area, the start line and finish line are all in close proximity to each other we will not be checking bags. 
  • Are there bathrooms on the course? For the 5k there will not be a bathroom on the course. The half marathon course will have a portable toilet around miles 3 and 6 and the Lehigh Trailhead Parking lot on Colbert Lane, just before the turnaround, has indoor restrooms.
  • Are strollers allowed in either race? Unfortunately we cannot safely allow strollers in the Starlight races. 
  • What is the parking situation? Find the parking map HERE. Make sure you arrive in plenty of time to park.
  • Is there a time limit for either race?  There is a 3 hour 15 minute time limit for the half marathon. The 5k has no time limit except to be done within that 3 hour 15 minutes timeframe.
  • Is the race professionally chip timed? Absolutely! Red Pointer Productions is handling our timing again. Your chip will be on the back of your bib number. Make sure you pin your number to the front of your shirt and wear it on your outside layer.
