Millstadt Tin Man Half Marathon and 5K Run

Millstadt, IL

More than 200 runners lined up for the 2021 Millstadt Tin Man Half Marathon and 5K races.  We hope to see all of you and many more for this year's races on Sunday May 22.  The half marathon will start at 7:30 a.m., with the 5K race beginning a few minutes later.  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.  Central Bank, located at the corner of Washington and Jefferson, and Leesman Funeral Home, located at the corner of Jefferson and Mill,  in Millstadt, have agreed to allow parking on their lot.  We are working to get additional parking priveleges from other local businesses.  We request that participants follow CDC guidelines for COVID-19.

The entry fee for the half marathon will be $55 until 11:59 pm on May 3, 2022; from May 4 until 7:00 pm on May 21 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 May 3; it will be $30 from May 4 until 7:00 pm on May 21; 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 May 3, 2022.  Anyone donating $20 will also receive a tee shirt.  Packet pick-up will be on Saturday May 21 from 4-6 pm at Ott's Tavern, 20 East Washington, Millstadt, and on Sunday May 22 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.  2022 will be an exciting year for our landmark - we (the Friends of the Old Millstadt Water Tower) have signed a contract with Maguire Iron, from Sioux Falls, SD, to paint the Tower!!  We look forward to having our landmark restored to its original appearance, and you have helped us achieve our goal!!
