Hotel rooms are available at the venue. The number of rooms available on-site for check-in on Saturday, May 9 is somewhat limited, so if you're planning to arrive on May 9, please plan to book your hotel rooms early.

The first day of the Marathon will be Sunday, May 10. The final day will be Friday, May 15. Events will be planned for all day on Friday, May 15, but the organizers understand that non-local participants may need to leave early to catch flights.

Due to UIUC graduation the weekend of May 16-17, no hotel rooms are available at the venue for the night of Friday, May 15. Furthermore, it is highly likely that all hotel rooms in Champaign, Urbana, and nearby towns within driving distance will all be completely full beginning Friday, May 15.
