Starved Rock Country 5K @ Washington Park
May 11 @ 7:10 am

Back for a 6th year, the 2019 Starved Rock Country Marathon and Half Marathon (and 5K) has become the “must do” event of the running community in central Illinois. The Marathon course will again encompass the scenery of the Illinois River, the neighborhoods of Ottawa and the rolling landscapes in and around Starved Rock State Park. Runners will be inspired by the scenery of rolling country hills and natural rock formations tucked into heavily wooded areas created by the Illinois River thousands of years ago. Also, this record eligible marathon course has 16 aide stations with Gatorade at each station and we plan to have once station for the half and two for the marathon with GU. Runners participating in the Half Marathon, which starts in the heart of Starved Rock State Park will also experience the neighborhoods of Ottawa in addition to wooded scenery and sites along the Illinois River. The Half Marathon is a flat, fast course making for a nice run through country and city alike. Each runner will receive a participant shirt and finishers receive a race specific medal which will be the fifth in the series.

The Run Starved Rock 5K  will return as well..  This event will start and end at the same lines as the marathon, and following part of the marathon route before heading back to Ottawa for a finish along the river.  The event is a great addition for those who want to participate in the events of the day as well as family/friends looking to do something while their loved one or friend is running another race.  A portion of this event will benefit local charities and events to promote running and physical activity.  

Again this year, the Health expo/packet pickup will be held from Noon – 8PM on Friday May 11th, Ottawa Knights of Columbus Hall, 401 W. Main Street, Ottawa, IL. Runners will receive their bibs (required for race participation), participant shirt as well as a swag bag filled with local and regional offers and race information.
