25th Annual Shoreline Classic
Sunday, September 21st 2014

The Shoreline Classic is the premier Road Race in downstate Illinois. This event draws hundreds of runners, walkers and spectators from across the state of Illinois. The race provides both a competitive and recreational event for athletes while promoting the value of living a healthy lifestyle.

Both the TAC CERTIFIED 5K and 15K races are run along the shores of beautiful Lake Decatur. The 5K is a relatively flat and fast out-and-back, while the 15K is a challenging, hilly loop around the lake. Both routes are on paved roads with traffic control, 1 mile splits, and water stops every 2 miles.

Shoreline Squad Training Program

Decatur Memorial Hospital and the Specific Performance Enhancement Center have developed training programs in collaboration with Shoreline Classic to provide new runners a structured program to complete a 5K run, and for experienced runners to complete the 15K. Contact DMH at (217) 876-4249 or visit for more information and to sign up. 

Kroger Post Race Party will feature food, energy drinks, music and awards ceremony. Enjoy a range of different food items including sandwiches, fruit, and specialty items from Ray's Chili.

Time Limits
In an effort to work with the community due to the closure of several main traffic lanes, we have to enforce a 12 minute/mile pace on the 15K course only. This translates to an approximate time of 1:50:00.
