About The Star City Half Marathon

The Star City Half Marathon, held on November 18, 2023, in Roanoke, VA, is a race that every half marathon runner would love to be a part of. This highly anticipated event brings together runners from all around to experience the excitement and thrill of this iconic race.

One of the highlights of the 2023 race is the introduction of the Kids Mile Fun Run, allowing the whole family to participate and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere. As participants lace up their running shoes, they can also indulge in the mouthwatering flavors of Roanoke. From the legendary Texas Tavern to the delectable Canales, runners can fuel up on local cuisine, adding an extra treat to their racing experience.

But the excitement doesn’t end there. The post-race food is available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so you’ll want to sprint your way to the finish line to secure your well-deserved meal. Moreover, this race also gives participants a chance to make a positive impact in the community. For every 6 cans of food donated at the event, a $10 Dick’s gift certificate will be earned, with no limits per person. This partnership with the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank and Kroger helps provide assistance to local families in need, fostering a spirit of giving and solidarity among the runners.

Roanoke, known as the Star City of the South, offers a charming backdrop for this exhilarating race. With its picturesque landscape and historic landmarks, runners can take in the beauty and atmosphere of the city as they conquer the course. And with pleasant weather expected during November, the cool autumn breeze and mild temperatures will make for an ideal running environment.

Whether you’re a seasoned runner or a first-timer, the Star City Half Marathon promises an unforgettable experience. So get ready to lace up, challenge your limits, and enjoy a race that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Remember, the only thing better than the finish line is the feeling of accomplishment and the happiness that comes with crossing it.
