Millstadt, IL

    Attention All Millstadt Tin Man Half Marathon & 5K Runners:
If you have been looking for your times from the May 21, 2023 races, please check the Toolens' Running Start website:     If you see from the results that you won a medal, please go to Toolens', located in the Green Mount Crossing shopping center in Shiloh, IL  (Frank Scott Parkway East at Green Mount Road).  Thanks again for running for the Tin Man!!
Runners from ten states came to Millstadt last May for the Millstadt Tin Man Half Marathon and 5K races.  We look forward to seeing them return, along with many new runners.  Both races will start at 7:30 a.m.  The course will be the same as last year, beginning at the corner of Madison and Breese streets, by the Millstadt Tin Man, and will be out-and-back for both distances along East Madison Street, Urbana Road, Schmidt Lane and Park Road.  We will have volunteers at all of the road intersections, but traffic will be on the route - please stay to the side of the roads!!  The course is over oiled and chipped roads with gentle hills through the Millstadt countryside.

The top three overall male and female finishers in both the half marathon and 5K will receive plaques.  In addition, the top three finishers in each age bracket will receive a medal.  However, there will be no duplication of awards.  Age groups (M & F) will be 14 & under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, and 70 & over.  All registrants will receive a tee shirt.  In addition, all half marathon finishers will receive a commemorative Tin Man Mug.  Post-race lunch, featuring our homemade pulled pork and slaw, along with other post race favorites, will be served at Ott's.  Rob Morris, the owner of the Kantina DJ service, will again be providing the music for a lively race atmosphere.  Leesman Funeral Home, located at the corner of Jefferson and Mill,  in Millstadt, has agreed to allow parking on their lot, as has Central Bank (3 East Washington) and the owners of the former Mertz building (100 East Washington).  5K runners may park at Spike's Public House, located right by the start and finish lines, until 10:30.  

The entry fee for the half marathon will be $55 until 11:59 pm on April 24, 2023; from April 25 until 7:00 pm on May 20 the fee will be $60; race day registration will be $65.  The entry fee for the 5K will be $25 until 11:59 pm on April 24; it will be $30 from April 25 until 7:00 pm on May 20; race day registration will be $35.  Entry fees are non-refundable.  The races will be held rain or shine.  To guarantee receiving a tee shirt in your size, please register before April 25, 2022.  Anyone donating $20 will also receive a tee shirt.  Packet pick-up will be on Saturday May 20 from 4-6 pm at Ott's Tavern, 20 East Washington, Millstadt, and on Sunday May 21 from 6:30-7:30 am at the race.  We encourage anyone who will be in the Millstadt area on Saturday to stop by to get your packet.

We thank you in advance for running for the Tin Man.  Restoration work began on the Tower in the fall of 2022.  Winter weather interupted the project, but Maguire Iron has returntedin April and is continuing to work on the project.  We look forward to having our landmark restored to its original appearance, and you have helped us achieve our goal!!
