We are excited to announce the Prairie State Half Marathon, 10K, & 3.5 Mile will be happening LIVE on October 3rd, 2020. We have recreated this event to make it what we believe is the safest running event you can participant in. Check out our video below to see all of our event safety protocols in action. We also have a virtual option, as well!
Here’s how it works:
1. Register now for the Half Marathon, 10K, or 3.5 Mile to secure your spot and we will not charge your card until 9/16. We expect this event will sell out so register now to reserve your spot!
2. On event day, we will release 1 participant every 10 seconds. Participants will sign up for an exact start time closer to the event (exact date to be announced).
3. There will be limited touch points at this event. All event water will be in sealed water bottles at water stops and all finish line food will be prepackaged grab-and-go snacks.
4. This is a no mass gathering event. All registration will be done online and packet pick up will pre-event and by mail.
5. All staff and volunteers will be wearing a mask/facial covering and gloves at all times.
6. There will be increased hand washing and hand sanitizer stations throughout the event site and the race course.
We are excited to also offer the option to conquer the Prairie State Half Marathon, 10K, & 3.5 mile virtually on your own on a course of your choosing and get the gear mailed straight to your door.
Here’s how it works:
1. Register for the virtual event when you sign up. Your card will be charged at the time of registration.
