Race Day FAQ
Race Packet Pick-up:  Packet pick-up will be located outside at Parkside Elementary School, 1900 Cedar St., Lawrenceville, IL 62439.  Due to COVID, we will be asking that you drive up to the location and we will hand you the packets. 
  • Friday: 6pm - 7pm
  • Saturday: 6:30am - 7:45am

*In years prior we were able to use the inside of the gymnasium but due to COVID we are not allowed inside the school building. The entire event will be outside. We encourage you to bring chairs and outdoor canopies.​*

Course:  The SISC Half Marathon starts at Parkside Elementary School, continues through Lawrenceville, winds through the Lawrence County countryside and ends on the new Lawrenceville High School track.  The 13.1 mile course is mostly flat.  The course will officially close 4 hours after the start time.  Please be advised that portions of the course will remain open to traffic.  

The 5K course starts at Parkside Elementary School, continues through Lawrenceville and ends on the new Lawrenceville High School track.  The course is mostly flat.  Please be advised that portions of the course will remain open to traffic.  

Due to COVID we have decided to cancel the Kids Half Marathon for the 2021 SISC Race. We're hopeful to bring it back for the 2022 SISC Race!

Health and Safety:  Drink fluids before, during and after the race.  Stay hydrated!  There will be 7 water stations along the course.  Three of these stations will also offer Gatorade.  Traffic control will be provided by SISC volunteers and the Lawrenceville Police Dept.  However, please be advised that although volunteers along the course will deter traffic to the best of their ability, safety is ultimately your own responsibility.  Watch for traffic! All volunteers and race workers will be wearing masks due to COVID.
