About This Activity

The 22nd Annual Rattlesnake Master Run for the Prairie includes a 10K and 5K run and 5K walk using chip timing to benefit Grand Prairie Friends.

This race circles the beautiful 130-acre Meadowbrook Park and prairie in Urbana, Illinois.  The proceeds support Grand Prairie Friends, a non-profit organization committed to preserving and restoring tallgrass prairie and woodlands in east central Illinois for the benefit of endangered plants and animals.

Post-race activities include food, music, race awards, and door prizes.  This 250-300 person race is one of the last runs of the season at a beautiful time of year.  Family and youth are very welcome.
