The Star City Half Marathon & 10k is sponsored by the Star City Striders, a Roanoke group whose mission is to promote walking, jogging, and running for fitness, fun, and competition. Both races will provide challenges as well as healthy enjoyment. The autumn chill of November is the perfect weather for this event. A special Taste of Roanoke party is a fabulous after-race bonus to end the exhilarating experience on a delicious note for everyone.
