2023  FINISHER AWARD

2022 Finisher award

Double the Challenge, Double the Fun

Sign up to run both of McHenry County's half marathons and receive the "McHenry Duo" Challenge award 

Challenge yourself this spring at the Hillstriders March Madness Half Marathon, Northern Illinois most challenging half Marathon, then explore the sites and neighborhoods of Crystal Lake at the Crystal Lake Half Marathon in the Fall. 


COST  $150  - Both races are covered with one fee. 

Runners who complete both races will receive not only a medal for each race, but an additional medal that will connect to the two Half Marathon medals.  (Update: Due to the rising costs of material, an award of equal value will be substituted)


Once you complete your registration on the March madness site,  your name and contact information will be added to the Crystal Lake registration page. You will receive an email to update your waiver and shirt size at a later date.
