The City of Dreams Rockford presents its 9th Annual Rockford Marathon. The Rockford Marathon Celebrates Running with a full Marathon (26.2), a Half Marathon (13.1)
and a 10K Race (6.2) which are the quintessential model of “the People’s Marathon”.
Runners love this event! It is friendly, well supported, flat and fast.
The Rockford Region is strong because of its diverse demographics and connected location — central in the Midwest and right next to the expanding Chicagoland market. Located a short hour's drive northwest of Chicago and just 40 minutes south of Madison, Wis., this popular Midwest event promises a truly unique 2017 running experience.
The event features participants from 26 states as well as international competitors, and the course meanders through the Historic District of the City featuring historic home styles that include Queen Anne, Greek Rival, Italianate, Dutch Colonial, and Tudor style homes. These are just a few of the architectural styles of homes located within the eight historic neighborhoods in Rockford’s urban core. The course continues, along the scenic Rock River and through the City’s park system and finishes on the main Bridge adjacent to the City’s River Front Gem – Davis Park.
All participants receive “Free Parking”, a finishers medal, tech shirt and a treat of refreshments in the post event green space of Davis Park.
The event is truly exceptional and one not to miss on your bucket list.
