Runners start the race at Assembly Hall on 1st Street just south of St. Mary’s Road, on the University of Illinois campus. From there, the point-to-point course for the half marathon follows the same route as the full marathon for the first 11 miles; there, the half marathoners turn off to make their way toward the finish line on the 50-yard line at the University’s Memorial Stadium, the home of the “Fighting Illini.”
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
