Race volunteers, the finish line, and post-race festivities will remain active long enough to accommodate runners taking up to 7 hours.

The race starts near State Farm Center, runs through campus, loops
through Urbana, back through campus, out into Champaign, and
finishes on the 50-yard line of Memorial Stadium.
