Presence Health Illinois 10K Run/Walk

approx. 7:35AM




After the wave start for the marathon, half marathon, and marathon relay, we will line up all 10K entrants according to pace, with the fastest runners at the front, the walkers at the back, and everyone else in between.  At approximately 7:35 AM, the 10K race will begin.



The course starts near State Farm Center, runs north on First Street and through downtown Champaign, past West Side Park and the Champaign Country Club, and finishes on the 50-yard line of Memorial Stadium



Prices go up as race day gets closer. Registration closes on April 16, 2017 (except for the Youth Run, which stays open until April 19).

Expo  (if spots available) $55



All participants must pick up their packets (race number, goody bag, and race shirt) no later than Friday, April 21, at 7 pm during the Health & Fitness Expo at the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC). The expo is open Thursday, April 20, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday, April 21, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Contact the race hotline (217-722-5025) if your travel plans prevent you from picking up your race packet (race number, goody bag, and race shirt).

New for 2017: We are using cutting-edge, dynamic bib assigning this year, which will speed up our race number pickup process quite a bit. On Tuesday, April 18, we will email each entrant a unique QR code—instead of a specific race number, as in the past. Print and bring to the expo a copy of your QR code (or show it to us on your phone) to be assigned and receive your race number. If you plan to pick up a race number for someone else, you must have a copy of that person’s QR code (paper copy or on your phone).

The address of the ARC is 201 E. Peabody, Champaign, IL. (See Google’s map.) For parking, see our parking map.

If you can’t get to the expo, you can have someone else pick up your number for you as long as that person has a copy (paper or electronic) of the QR code we emailed you.



10K entrants will receive a unisex technical shirt color TBD and a drawstring backpack. Finishers get a great medal, finish line food and drink, and one beverage at the 27th-Mile Celebrate Victory Bash on Saturday. (Entrants must display their race bib to receive the beverage.)


Unisex technical shirts come in adult sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL and XXXL and youth sizes S, M, and L. The 10K shirt color is sport navy. See shirt sizing chart here.
