From the start/finish area at the University of Illinois-Springfield the course passes through tree-lined subdivisions then crosses over Lake Springfield before heading back to campus.
This is a race you can run or walk! The Springfield ¼ Marathon is just slightly over a 10K at 6.55 miles. From the start/finish area at the University of Illinois-Springfield the course runs through shady subdivisions along Lake Springfield.
