The Illinois Marathon Returns

The Illinois Marathon returns to the Champaign-Urbana area on Saturday, April 28, 2012. The marathon will start at 7:00am near Assembly Hall. The course will travel through Urbana, parts of the U of I campus, and Champaign, before looping back to finish at the 50 yard line of Memorial Stadium.

Race participants will travel past Stone Creek Golf Course, Meadowbrook Park, Illini Grove, Champaign Country Club, Centennial Park, and other locations in town. Along the route, there will also be live entertainment.

Just blocks from the marathon route in Urbana, you’ll find The Pines at Stone Creek, which has a variety of restaurant choices for hungry spectators, including Subway, Milo’s, Cafe Zojo, Wines at the Pines, and Monical’s.
