You’ve finished the race and now it’s time to celebrate. Join Visit Champaign County at the Meijer 27th-Mile Celebrate Victory Bash right after the 2015 Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon.
Starting at 8 a.m., located just outside Memorial Stadium on Kirby Ave., the Meijer 27th-Mile is the perfect place for you to kick back and relish in your accomplishment. Each participant will receive a complimentary beer, provided by Fat City Bar & Grill, with your race number as your ticket. Non-alcoholic beverages will be available as well for those under 21.
There will be live entertainment on the center stage from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. to entertain runners and their families after the race.
For the kids, check out the Action Inflatables set up to burn off energy of their own. Finally, memorialize your accomplishment with the News-Gazette Cut-Out for a fun way to see yourself on the “cover” of our local newspaper.
