So even if you are fully vaccinated, if you are experiencing any symptoms of viral illness (headache, sore throat, cough, fever, fatigue, body aches, loss of sense of smell or taste, shortness of breath), you should not report to the start line on April 24-26. Medical deferral to our 2026 Christie Clinic Illinois Race Weekend event will be granted to anyone who cannot participate due to any potential COVID-19 symptoms (you must contact race organizers at director@illinoismarathon or by calling the race hotline at 217-902-1538.

RaceSafe is a medical management software used as a service for medical teams to help with secure documentation, communications, and reporting of medical incidents. The medical team uses smartphone and/or web-based apps with a database using Amazon Web Services in the cloud. The system is HIPAA-compliant both on the software and hardware sides. In addition to our event, RaceSafe is used by well-recognized races like the Boston Marathon, Twin Cities Marathon, San Francisco Marathon, Flying Pig Marathon, Bellin Run, Baltimore Marathon, and Cowtown Marathon.
