2011 Illinois Marathon Review
I had the opportunity back in 2009 to run the inaugural Illinois Marathon and decided to go back again for the 2011 edition. In my mind, there is no higher compliment than for a marathoner to run the same marathon again – especially when the first time was for the inaugural event! I think the Illinois Marathon is one of those well-run events that got it right at their start and continue to do a good job.
The Illinois Marathon is run in Champaign, Illinois. It is large college town that is also a well kept-up town. I found the areas that we ran in were pleasant to view and enjoyable to run through.
