The Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon offers a beautiful, scenic tour of the University of Illinois campus, revitalized downtown streets, tree-lined residential neighborhoods, and an awesome paved park trail. Thousands of friendly and fun fans and volunteers from Champaign-Urbana line the course, exuding Midwest hospitality like you have never seen before.
You will find first-class race shirts, medals, food, and fanfare. Enjoy a spectacular finish at the 50-yard-line of the Universitys historic Memorial Stadium and attend the rocking postrace 27th-Mile Celebrate Victory Bash right outside the stadium. Live music, free beer, interactive booths, bragging rights.
From the youngest to the oldest, from the slowest to the fastest, from the youth run to the marathon, there is a race for everyone.
Join us April 26 & 27, 2019 for the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon Race Weekend! Our mantra is making runners happy, one mile at a time.
