Its Not a Sprint its a Marathon!

Last year, the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon drew 18,700 runners to the streets of Champaign-Urban to tackle the various races including: the relay, the half-marathon, 5K, 10K and the big race … the 26-mile marathon.  This year, race organizers are expecting to hit 20,000 runners.  Add in the thousands of spectators lining the streets to cheer on the runners … and this is one of Champaign-Urbana’s largest events.

Jan Seeley and Mike Lindemann, co-directors of the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon tell us more about the this year’s Marathon and new changes they have made this year to improve on the quality, safe experience for runners, volunteers and spectators.

I am proud that we can shine a light on this amazing event and the wonderful people in our community that make it happen.  To watch the entire interview with Jan Seeley and Mike Lindemann CLICK HERE
