August 12- State Fair 2 Mile Parade Run

Spring is upon us and it’s time to start talking races. The 2009 Illinois State Fair Parade Run was a great event and we expect the 2010 event to be even bigger and better. Help us take this race over the top!

Registration is now open for the 2010 Illinois State Fair 2 Mile Parade Run being held on August 12, 2010 @ 5:30 PM by going to:

As a result of numerous suggestions, we have a “No Shirt” entry fee. The fee to participate in the Parade Run without receiving a shirt will be $10.00 until August 10, 2010 at 11:59 PM. The price increases to $12.00 if registering for this option at Packet Pick-up or on Race Day. There will not be any discounts given for this option.

We have carried forward the 2009 fees ($16.00) for those wanting a shirt until June 30, 2010 @ 11:59 PM. From July 1, 2010 till August 10, 2010 @ 11:59 PM, the fee will increase to $18.00. A $1.00 discount will be provided for those that are members of the SRRC.  At Packet Pick-up and on Race Day, the fee will increase to $20.00 with no discount.

All GMR (Get me Registered) fees are included in the registration fee.

Once again, Zorrel will be the provider of our race shirts with Chris Britt providing the art work. The race shirts will be the same style/fit as the shirts were for the 2009 event. Everyone will be guaranteed a race shirt that paid for one. We hope to have all the shirts/sizes available but some may need to be delivered after the race date.

Since this is a 2 mile event, walkers are encouraged to participate but there is not a separate category for walkers. Walkers will be eligible for age group awards.

Registration for this event is only available on-line. In the event that this option is not available to you, please contact either Lance Cull ( or Kevin Milward ( and we will make sure you get registered.

    A big THANK YOU to Springfield, IL for hosting our favorite summer run. Well worth the travel from Cambridge every year. Great job to the organizers and to all who survived a heat index of 112 (or so I’m told)!
    Hope to see you next year and let us know if you are in Boston for the marathon.
