illinois marathon new year's day 2017 resolution registration sale

Disclaimer: I received an entry for Illinois Marathon to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

As you might have read, I am registered for the Full I-Challenge at Illinois Marathon weekend April 21–22. That means the 5k on Friday night and the full marathon on Saturday morning. You can read a bit more about why I chose the race here if you like.

A few quick bullet points:
  • Finishes on the U of I football field
  • Not too far of a drive (about 2 hours)
  • Time of year that I was looking for my spring marathon - May can be too hot
  • Other out of state friends running it
  • Marathon finishers get a fleece blanket and medal
  • For completing the Full I-Challenge I'll receive 3 medals
  • Pasta Dinner (not included with registration)

They recently revealed the 5k shirt. It's blue (my favorite color). Some details:
"The Campus Sportswear team is rolling on designs and screen printing our 2017 race shirts. They have begun printing thePresence Health 5K Run/Walk shirts. Our designs this year will celebrate the Sesquicentennial Celebration of the University of Illinois. This shirt features Red Grange’s “Galloping Ghost” statue, located on the west exit of Memorial Stadium. The 5K Shirt is printed on an Alo Sport Unisex 100% Polyester Shirt in Sport Royal."
