About This Activity

In its second year, the 2015 Starved Rock Country marathon and half marathon has been described as a soon to be favorite in central Illinois.    The course will again encompass the scenery of the Illinois River and the rolling landscapes in and around Starved Rock State Park.  Runners will experience a course that is not a flat fast course but a course that has characteristics that will inspire you with scenic beauty and experience the highs and lows of the hills created by the Illinois River thousands of years ago.

The half route is mostly an out and back, but the scenery each direction along the widely considered flat route will make for a nice run.
