Register Now for the 8th Annual Get Your 6.6 on Route 66!
At 8 am on Saturday, August 28, 2021, CORE of McLean, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, is holding our 8th annual 6.6k (4.1-mile) run/walk on Route 66 from Funks Grove to McLean to benefit the community of McLean, IL. We are excited to once again offer this as a LIVE event! This point-to-point 6.6k/4.1-mile run/walk starts in Funks Grove (shuttle service is provided from McLean to Funks Grove), with participants running or walking on the Mother Road herself to our new park under the old water tower in McLean, which was funded by previous proceeds from this event. This race has become a much-anticipated must-do for many—join us in having a great time raising money for our community! We will be instituting a few changes to encourage safe social distancing, including offering early packet pickup and minimizing post-race gathering. Awards will be given for the best times (male/female) in several age groups, and favorites such as the pre-race shot of pure maple sirup and commemorative shot glasses, awesome t-shirts, and post-race food from the Dixie will be back. Also returning will be a classic car show and Ruby's Rescue & Retreat with adoptable dogs and puppies, as well as a silent auction to benefit their rescue in McLean. See the race webpage for more details and to register. https://www.mclean-il.com/get-your-6-6-on-route-66.
