Back for 2021…

We are thrilled to partner again with the team at the Madison Mini-Marathon in Madison, Wisconsin, to bring you the third annual Illini-Badger Challenge, with a new twist this year. Those running the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon or Full I-Challenge also qualify, not just half marathon and half I-challenge entrants. 

Here are all the details.

Illini-Badger Challenge

  • All participants who register for and finish either the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon or Half Marathon on Saturday, May 1 and the Madison Mini-Marathon in Madison, WI, on July 24 are eligible for the Illini-Badger Challenge. (Participants who run the Full-I or Half I-Challenge on race weekend in Champaign-Urbana also qualify)
  • Run memorable races in two great cities and receive three (or four, if you are an I-Challenger in Champaign) fantastic medals—at no additional cost! You’ll receive a commemorative Illini-Badger Challenger medal to go with your medal(s) earned in Champaign and your Madison Mini-Marathon medal.
  • Top three male and female OPEN finishers (based on combined times in the two events; half marathon entrants only) will receive a special award to be mailed after the Madison Mini-Marathon on July 24.
  • Top three male and female MASTERS finishers (based on combined times in the two events; half marathon entrants only) will receive a special award to be mailed after the Madison Mini-Marathon on July 24.
