Illinois Marathon Participants Can Support the Library

The Champaign Public Library Foundation is an official Charity Running Partner for the 2014 Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon on April 24 to 26.

Signing up through the library is a win-win: You get discounted registration (at the early bird rate), while the library benefits from your pledges of support from family and friends.

To run for the library, you must start your registration process through us. Here’s how:

  1. First, choose your event: marathon, half marathon, relay, 10K, 5K, or one of three challenge events. You can learn more on the marathon’s website — but remember, don’t register there.
  2. Provide your registration information to Donna Pittman, our development director, at or 217/403-2048. We’ll need (1) your first and last names; (2) the event you wish to sign up for; and (3) your e-mail address.
  3. We’ll send you a registration code and instructions for how to register online (at your discounted rate) and set up a fundraising web page to share with potential supporters.

If You’re Already Registered for the Race

Already registered for the race? You can still set up a fundraising page and support the library. To get started, go to the marathon’s Crowdrise page and click on the Library Foundation logo.
