CELEBRATING 40 YEARS!
RUNNING FORWARD TOGETHER ON SEPTEMBER 27, 2020
While we have all been doing our part during this crisis, whether it be staying home or continuing essential work, we’re all on this journey together. Our roots run strong and we look forward to gathering at the Start Line to celebrate our 40th running of the DeKalb Corn Classic!
We are committed to putting on a great, safe race offering scenic race courses that will take you through historic neighborhoods, along the Kishwaukee River, through NIU’s Campus with on course entertainment and ending with free beer at the Post Race Celebration. While we can’t predict the future, we understand race day may look different than normal with any necessary precautions taken. In the event the race absolutely cannot safely go on we will offer a virtual race, distribute race packets, and donate proceeds to local frontline workers.
Whether we gather and run or just gather in mind and spirit, we are running forward together – always.
