Now in its 5th year, the 2018 Starved Rock Country Marathon and Half Marathon presented by Samuel Adams has become the “must do” event of the running community in central Illinois.
The Marathon course will again encompass the scenery of the Illinois River, the neighborhoods of Ottawa and the rolling landscapes in and around Starved Rock State Park. Runners will be inspired by the scenery of rolling country hills and natural rock formations tucked into heavily wooded areas created by the Illinois River thousands of years ago. Also, this record eligible marathon course has 16 aide stations with GU at one aid station and Gatorade at each station.
Runners participating in the Half Marathon, which starts in the heart of Starved Rock State Park will also experience the neighborhoods of Ottawa in addition to wooded scenery and sites along the Illinois River. The Half Marathon is a flat, fast course making for a nice run through country and city alike.
Each runner will receive a participant shirt and finishers receive a race specific medal which will be the fifth in the series.
