Volunteer registration for the 2021 Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon Race Weekend will open this fall.

To make this year’s race weekend a success, we will require nearly 3,000 volunteers.

Each team member receives a Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon Race Weekend TEAM t-shirt and drawstring backpack! We are grateful to Einstein Bros. Bagels for sponsoring our official volunteer drawstring backpack. As a bonus to all volunteers, once you receive your volunteer bag, bring it with you to any of the many Einstein Bros. Bagel locations in Champaign and Urbana and receive a 10% discount on your order every time you eat there for the rest of 2021!

We are also grateful to Culver’s for sponsoring our new Double Dippers program. If you volunteer for the Illinois Marathon Race Weekend AND participate (run or walk) in any of the events, you are a Double Dipper and qualify to receive a free double dip of custard every month for a year from any of the three Culver’s located in Champaign-Urbana. The Double Dipper program starts in May of 2021 and runs through the end of April of 2022.
