These are five great things about the Princeton HiTOPS Half… and High-5 for you! You made it. You’re here on the Princeton HiTOPS Half Marathon page, and while we’re on the number 5… this is the 5th running of this iconic race, and it’s happening on Sunday, November 5th. Register today… and guess what? It only takes 5 minutes!
Personal bests run on our course hold clout!
Our USATF Certified Grand Prix event (500 points) starts in the center of downtown Princeton and weaves through numerous cultural and historic landmarks. Sure we could offer a fast, flat course, but we know runners like to rise to the challenge and enjoy a little history along the way.
Every decision is made in the best interest of the runner.
This race raises money and awareness for adolescent health education, youth development and helping young people make healthy choices, and the organizer, HiTOPS, is really good at that. But when it comes to the race, all planning is left to a dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced race committee of past (and current) participants. On November 5th, this race is all about you, and we work really hard to make sure you know it!
We know you have a lot of options for races. Here’s why you should run with us!
aaaaand (drumroll please….)
BEER AND FOOD! All races offer food, and some races, if you’re lucky, offer beer… but the HiTOPS Half is the only race to offer a full-on “Kegs & Eggs” Post Race Celebration for just $7 with your race bib!
