Shawnee Marathon, Half-Marathon & Run Like a Squatch 5K
The 2022 Shawnee Marathon and Half-Marathon will be returning on October 2. 2022. This is a few weeks sooner than the Marathon typically lands on. This was done so that the race would fall in conjunction with the City of Harrisburg Sasquatch Festival. This allows the City to close all of the necessary streets on one weekend as opposed to two weekends in the same month. It also provides a festival-style atmosphere for our finishers.
Located in the heart of Southern Illinois and Garden of the Gods Country. The area’s landscape is one of the most scenic areas of the midwest. The race features sandstone rock formations, high vistas, rolling meadows, tall trees, acres of farmland, fresh air, and just a serene overall atmosphere.
