2020 race has been postponed and we are hoping to move it to October. No confirm date as of April 14.
We continue to work diligently with University of Illinois and Champaign-Urbana civic leaders to secure our new race weekend dates in the second half of 2020. We will announce those dates just as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience.
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, fun fans and volunteers from Champaign-Urbana line the course, exuding Midwest hospitality.
