More than 400 people are expected to participate in the Inaugural Star of Hope Half Marathon. It's happening in Robbinsville on April 7th.

The inaugural Star of Hope Half Marathon, which begins and ends at Community Park, will take runners through 13 miles of rural Robbinsville roads.

The event raises funds for Thea's Star of Hope, a local nonprofit that "raises funds for pediatric brain tumor programs and research".

Runners will receive participation medals after crossing the finish line. There will also be food trucks, music, and vendor booths.

Registration is underway. For more information about the event, visit runsignup.com/starofhopehalfmarathon.
