1.) Is there a time limit for the Marathon or Half-Marathon?

Beginning in 2018, we will be placing an 8 hour time limit on the Marathon. If you are taking the time to train and prepare for a race of this distance and spending your hard earned money on entry fees, we will be as flexible as reasonably possible. The Half-Marathon will continue to not have a time limit for completion.

2.) What is the entry fee?

Check the “Race Info” tab for further. There are different fees depending on how early you register. It pays to be early!

3.) What do I get with my entry to the event?

Your entry includes a custom finisher’s race medal (must finish the race) and custom shirt (the shirt is only guaranteed if you register before the deadline). The 10K may or may not have finisher’s medals. The event may also include access to food vendors, beer vendors, musical entertainment and any other scheduled activities. This varies from year to year.

4.) Is this a team event or individual?

At this time, it is an individual event only. We no longer offer the team relay option. 

5.) What happens if there is rain?

The event will be held rain or shine. We will cancel the event for severe weather when our participants could be placed in danger. The safety of our racers, staff, and spectators is our top concern. Notifications will be sent if the race is delayed or rescheduled. 

6. ) When should I arrive?

You will want to arrive an hour before your race starts. Feel free to arrive even earlier to join in on the fun and visit our merchandise tent/booth.

7.) Can I register the day of the event?

Yes! We welcome walk-up registrations the day of the event. However, we cannot guarantee medals and shirts to same day registrants.

8.) Does the Shawnee Marathon support charities?

Absolutely! Every Run To Succeed owned event partners with a local charity.

9.) Can I pick up race packets for others?

You are welcome to pick up packets for your family or friends.  However, it is imperative that every participant must have signed an event waiver during the registration process in order for the packet to be picked up.  If the waiver was not signed, the packet will not be released.

Unfortunately not. The race course was already established before Run To Succeed took over ownership of the event. With the 10K, we wanted to name the race after a nearby landmark and Jackson Falls is what we ultimately settled on. If you are in the area pre or post race, we would highly recommend checking out both landmarks as they are only a short drive away.

11.) Can student athletes receive prize money for finishing in the top 3 of their respective race?

No, We will honor the IHSA restrictions for student athletes receiving prize money. These restrictions are found in IHSA By-laws 3.080. A violation of this will cause the student to no longer be eligible for their sport.
