Kickoff race weekend 2017 in style by joining us at the 4th Mile, a high-energy event in conjunction with the Presence Health 5K Run/Walk on Friday, April 21.
Starting at 6:00 p.m. and located just outside Memorial Stadium on Kirby Ave. (see the area map for location), the 4th Mile is the perfect place for you to kick up some excitement before the race and where you can celebrate with your friends after the race. The Illini Radio Group will host the event, which runs until 10:00 p.m.
A live band, to be determined, will perform starting at 6:15 p.m. and will play two sets, ending at 9:30 p.m.
In addition to live music, there will be food trucks as well as a beer tent and activities for the kids. (The official, complimentary 5K postrace food is served in the Great West Hall of Memorial Stadium. All the food at the 4th Mile is for purchase.)
