This community-wide event presented by the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon supports the CU Schools Foundation. Participants run/walk 1 mile starting from The Pines shopping center in Urbana at the corner of Windsor and Philo Rd. There are ten different waves allowing elite runners as well as walkers with strollers an opportunity to participate. Participants receive t-shirts and enjoy post race food and beverages from local vendors. All proceeds from this annual event are donated directly to the Champaign Urbana Schools Foundation.
