Springfield Clinic Springfield Marathon
Oct 20 2013
Weekend Warrior Productions, Ltd.
- Half Marathon
The Springfield Clinic Springfield Marathon proudly offers an inaugural marathon event starting and finishing on the beautiful campus of the University of Illinois Springfield. An early forecast based on registrations through July 1st predicts 1500 to 2000 participants between the Marathon, Half-Marathon and 10K. So far the registrations between the marathon and half-marathon are equal.
The marathon and half-marathon routes circle the campus and move to the shaded and meandering roads of Lake Springfield's West Lake Road. Crossing over Lindsey Bridge to reach the east side of the lake and continuing on into the farm fields of the southeast Sangamon County. Although the route is mostly flat there will be a few elevation changes for the marathon runners to conquer. The half-marathon route turns back to the beautiful roads around Lake Springfield about mile 6 before reaching the final destination back on campus.
$5 of each race registration will be going to charities that support kids at risk as well as animal rescue. Registration and more race information can be found at springfieldmarathon.net.
