ATTENTION Starved Rock Country Runners!!! We are so excited to finally tell you all that the Date of this year's even will be Saturday, September 18th. We're also proud to announce that our Presenting Sponsor this year is none other than Dogfish Head. We have a lot of fun and creative ideas for this years race that'll insure that runners are safe but also able to participate in an exciting race with a great sponsor! Unfortunately we do have to share a bit of bad news. After talking with the State Park Conservation and Illinois Department of Transportation, we are unable to host the Full Marathon in 2021. It is our intent to continue holding a full marathon again in May of 2022. If you have already signed up for the Full Marathon (2020 or 2021) we will be sending you an email within the next week and you will have the option of moving your registration to the Half-Marathon along with a partial refund or receive a full refund. There will be a lot of information coming in the next few weeks so be sure to continue following us on Facebook and know that we at Run Starved Rock Country are ecstatic to finally be working towards another finish line. We'll see you all at the Start Line on September 18th!
