Description

Thea’s Star of Hope was founded in 2011 with a mission to bring hope to kids with brain tumors by funding research to Improve treatments and provide support for families of kids with brain tumors so that they can live and not just survive. Two thirds of kids with cancer suffer life-long effects from the treatments used to save their lives. Organ damage, endocrine issues, neurological and cognitive impairment are just a few common “late effects.” Surgery, radiation and chemotheraphy–current standards of care–must be improved upon if this is to change.

Thea’s Star of Hope is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. We are a Guidestar Silver-rated volunteer organization that directs more than eighty percent of our funds toward pediatric brain tumor programs and research.

ALL PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT PEDIATRIC BRAIN TUMOR RESEARCH AT THE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF PHILADELPHIA.

THE COURSE:
The half marathon event will be a USATF Certified 13.1 mile course, mostly flat along country roads. The course will not be closed to traffic but this is a rural area. Police and certified flagmen will be at all road intersections.  Road course support will "officially" end at approximately 10:45-11:00 AM. However, don't worry, as this is not a hard cut-off time. The timing worked out great for the first year in 2019. Our run angel volunteers will stay with the last few people for support and encouragement! And the finish line archway will not come down until everyone has crossed it.
Runners/Joggers should aim to maintain a minimum average pace to finish in about 3 hours. 

We are no longer offering the relay option however there will be a 5k race that starts that the same time as the half marathon. The course for the 5k is not certified, meaning it was not officially measured by a USATF official. It will be an out and back course going out approximately 1.55 miles and making a U-turn on Sharon Road back to the start/finish corral. 

The race is being timed and scored by Compuscore

Pace Group Suport

We have enlisted the help of pace group leaders from Beast Pacing. 
We anticipate having at 2 pacers/time slot maintaining the following paces: 1:40, 1:50, 2:00, 2:15, 2:30, 2:45, and 3:00.

Beast Pacing provides pacers for events across the United States and abroad. BP pacers are professional, but have FUN while helping other runners reach their goals. Whether it is a Boston Qualifying Time you are looking for, a P.R., or just someone to run with, we are there to help! BP pacers are chosen for their ability to successfully lead a group while keeping them motivated all the way to the finish. Pacers are assigned to Half Marathon times 10 minutes slower than they typically run and are required to finish the race within 1 minute of goal time, but never over. 

We will offer Honey Stinger Mango Orange Gels at 3 of our aid-stations. Near miles 3, 7 and 10.
