About This Activity

These traditional fall events start and end at Saucon Park along Rt 412 between Bethlehem and Hellertown, Pa (convenient to Rt78). The 10-mile course is a challenging course whose middle miles use South Mountain Drive to run on South Mountain surrounded by Lehigh Valley autumn colors. The 5K course is largely flat along Saucon Creek and the lower elevations at the foot of South Mountain.
