Details

4 MILE

The Steamboat Classic 4 Mile is famous as one of the world’s fastest 4 mile races (thanks to the flat course).  Steamboat is for more than just elite runners, it’s for everyone who wants to get up and get moving!

15K

The Steamboat Classic 15K is regarded as Illinois’ Toughest 15K because of the hilly loops that the race course takes in Glen Oak Park.

2 MILE

The Steamboat Classic 2 Mile is for participants who are interested in experiencing the Steamboat Classic, but aren’t ready for the 4 mile or 15K races.
