The Springfield Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k and Relay offers a beautiful, scenic run around the University of Illinois, Springfield Campus, the Lake Springfield area and, for the marathon, on the country roads Southeast of Lake Springfield.

Runners will see the beautiful fall foliage around the lake and friendly faces of hundreds of volunteers during your run. You’ll receive a one of kind finisher medal, high tech shirt, food and virtual goody bag full of offers from local restaurants and businesses.

Course Highlights

The race will follow an out-and-back route that starts and finishes at the University of Illinois-Springfield, whose more than 5,000 students go to class on a campus that backs up onto the shoreline of Lake Springfield.

From there, runners will wind their way first through campus and then onto the bridge that crosses the lake, where they’ll head over into Center Park and the Henson Robinson Zoo.\Next, the course follows a brief, L-shaped out-and-back along East Lake Shore Drive and Honeywell Road, where runners reach the turnaround point.

After that, the race heads back along roads the runners have just run, taking them back across the lake and into the campus of Lincoln Land Community College, keeping them close to the lakeshore along the next few miles.

The last few miles of the race bring runners back into the UIS campus, along Shepherd Road, Toronto Road, 11th Street and Ernest Hemingway Drive, followed by stretches along Eliza Farnham Drive and Richard Wright Drive.
