Marathon

The race starts near State Farm Center, runs through campus, loops through Urbana, back through campus, out into Champaign, and finishes on the 50-yard line of Memorial Stadium.

The course will be closed to traffic for participants who are averaging faster than 13:45 minutes per mile. Slower participants may continue after traffic is allowed onto the race course, but they do so at their own risk and must follow pedestrian statutes. Race volunteers, the finish line, and post-race festivities will remain active long enough to accommodate runners taking up to 7 hours.

Marathon entrants will receive a high-quality, gender-specific long-sleeve technical shirt and a drawstring backpack. Finishers get a great medal, a fleece blanket, commemorative heatsheet, food and drink after the race, and one beverage at the 27th-Mile Celebrate Victory Bash on Saturday.
