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.
Tom Grassman Band will be taking center stage from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to entertain runners and their families after the race.
And for when you’re hungry, be sure to check out some of Champaign’s best food trucks—La Paloma, Dave’s Dogs, Kona Ice, Jimmy John’s (Friday only), Sidney Dairy Barn (Friday only), 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!
