Congratulations! You’ve finished the race and now it’s time to celebrate. Join Experience Champaign Urbana and friends at the 27th Mile Celebrate Victory Bash right after your race on Saturday April 27. The 27th-Mile Celebrate Victory Bash is sponsored by Meijer.
Starting at 8 a.m., located just outside Memorial Stadium on Kirby Ave. (see the area map for location), the 27th Mile is the perfect place for you to kick back and relish in your accomplishment. Your race entry includes one ticket for a beer, wine, or cider, with your race number as your ticket (for entrants 21 and older). Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available, including Busch NA.
Peoria-based band, Top 4D, will take the stage from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. to entertain runners and their families after the race. The talented and professional group of musicians in Top 4D are all about having a TON of fun and playing the most “danceable” and “singalongable” Top 40 hits of all kinds of genres and decades that will guarantee every person at the Street Fest will hear something that gets them dancing and singing along.
In addition to live music, there will be food trucks—TBD (in 2023 we had La Paloma, Dave’s Dogs, Kona Ice, Jimmy John’s, Sidney Dairy Barn, and Flour and Fire Pizza). The official, complimentary postrace food is served in the Great West Hall of Memorial Stadium. All the food at the 27th Mile is for purchase.
And don’t forget to pick up your Wooden Nickels from Experience Champaign Urbana at the Health & Fitness Expo (Thursday, April 25, and Friday, April 26) for discounts at a variety of local businesses! You can also pick up Wooden Nickels at the Experience Champaign Urbana booth at the 27th mile. Check back regularly for the updated list of participants. New businesses added daily!
Plan now to relax, unwind, and enjoy yourself at the 27th Mile Celebrate Victory Bash sponsored by Meijer!
