It’s almost officially the weekend, and guess what that means? It is almost time for the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon, one of our favorite big events in Champaign!! The 5K race begins Friday--- TONIGHT, followed by the 10K, half, and full marathons tomorrow (Saturday). The Illinois Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifier so you don’t want to miss out on this premier event!

Starting at 8am on Saturday the party begins and goes until 2pm! You most definitely will want to stop by the Meijer 27th Mile Celebrate Victory Bash to unwind and enjoy a cool beverage (runners receive one complimentary beer from Fat City Bar & Grill) and live music from 90’s Daughter! The party will be at Memorial Stadium, located at 1402 S. First Street in Champaign.
