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. Ahead of race weekend, we will email each entrant a unique bar code—instead of a specific race number, as in the past. Print and bring to the expo a copy of your barcode (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 unique bar 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 unique bar code we emailed you.
Half Marathon entrants will receive a high-quality, gender-specific short-sleeve technical shirt (Leslie Jordan brand) and a drawstring backpack. Finishers get a great medal, a commemorative heatsheet, 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).
Gender-specific, short-sleeve technical shirt from Leslie Jordan in sizes XS (women only), S, M, L, XL, and XXL. The men’s and the women’s half marathon shirt color is electric yellow. See shirt sizing chart here.
