Join the Muhlenberg Team for the Runner's World Half and Festival

Runners (and walkers) of Muhlenberg, unite!

Meghan Kita—new(ish) writer in the office of communications, brand new member of the Employee Wellness Committee and former editor at Runner's World was able to work her extensive running connections to get a very special deal* for you all: 15 percent off any of the Runner's World Half & Festival races (October 19-21 in Bethlehem).

That's 15 percent off the 5K (3.1 miles), 10K (6.2 miles), half-marathon (13.1 miles) and 3.8-mile trail race, or any of the combination events (5K and 10K! 5K, 10K and half! Or all four!).
