The Anthem Star 10k is quickly becoming the most popular way to get involved in all the excitement of America’s Toughest Road Marathon. We know that 26.2 miles isn’t for everyone, and we don’t blame you! But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the race day hype that surrounds Roanoke’s signature athletic event. The beautiful Star 10k course leads up you up to the iconic 90 ft. Mill Mountain Star with overlooks of the entire city. You will be rewarded with great photo opportunities, and the pride of looking up at the star knowing that you conquered that mountain.
The best part of the Anthem Star 10k is that you have WAY more time than the other distances to enjoy the fabulous finish festival! Enjoy a beer compliments of the Blue Ridge Marathon team, grab a bite from a local food truck, and enjoy free live music as the full and half marathoners roll across the finish line. The Anthem Star 10k is a great challenge for people of all ages, so don’t miss out and join the fun!
