Marathon extends registration for most events

Procrastinators, you've got a few extra days to enter one of the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon races.

Race officials have extended the deadline for registration from Friday to midnight on Monday.

However, the half-marathon is full and no more entrants will be accepted in that race. But runners wanting to enter the marathon, marathon relay, 10K or 5K race can do so through Monday.

All races will be held April 30 except the 5K, which will be run on the evening of April 29. Registration for the Busey Illinois Youth Run will remain open until 2 p.m. April 30. The run is at 2:30 p.m. that day. Other than the youth run, there will be no registration at the Health & Fitness Expo on April 28 and 29.
