Early-Bird Registration for Princeton Half Marathon Open Now

Attention, early birds who are already visualizing yourselves running up those Princeton streets and hills and sprinting across the finish line on Chambers Street. Registration is now open for the Princeton Half Marathon. Yes, you got the scoop here at Planet Princeton first. What can we say? We are all pumped up about this great even to benefit HiTOPS!

You can register by visiting the Princeton Half Marathon page at Active.com.

The first 50 Planet readers to register before April 17 get the Active booking fee waived! Just remember to enter the code PLANET when you register.

The Princeton Half Marathon is scheduled for Nov. 4.  All proceeds from the event benefit the event organizer, HiTOPS. The non-profit works with adolescents, teens and young adults ages 10-26, as well as parents, teachers, schools and community groups, to provide the resources and education for young people to live healthy, responsible and empowered lives.

Organizers expect at least 1,000 runners to register for the 13.1 mile run based on data from other first-time half marathons. The event, which is expected to draw at least a few thousand spectators, will include entertainment and demos on Palmer Square. Various sponsorship opportunities will be available for local businesses.
