About Star City Half Marathon & 10K

Illuminated by the giant star atop Mill Mountain, Roanoke is the largest city in the valley and is the self-proclaimed ’Capital of the Blue Ridge. There are good eating and drinking options downtown (near Market and Campbell Sts), and appealing options 3 miles west along Grandin Rd. With that being said, the Star City Half Marathon is the place to be.

Now an annual autumn running tradition in this southwestern Virginia city, Roanoke’s Star City Half Marathon & 10K takes runners on a course that incorporates a mix of both hills and flat stretches along an out-and-back course that unfolds throughout the city, from the start and finish area near the River’s Edge Sports Complex at Wiley Drive and Franklin Road, along the Roanoke River.

Join us for a Tour of Roanoke with a Taste of Roanoke after race party!

The Star City Half Marathon is organised by the Star City Striders which is a volunteer organized group of active individuals who celebrate a running and walking lifestyle. We welcome all speeds, levels of competitiveness (and non-competitive) and fitness levels to take part in races, fun events and group runs for our health and well-being.
