Welcome

Founded in 1983, the Second Wind Running Club is Champaign-Urbana's premier running and walking club. Membership is open to all ages and levels, from beginning walkers to seasoned runners. With around 500 members, there is truly something for everyone.

Regularly Scheduled Weekly Events:

Tuesday: We are currently on the Summer Fun Runs schedule. Our Summer Fun Runs begin from Meadowbrook Park during the Spring and Summer months. Our Winter Fun Runs begin at the UofI ARC during the Winter months. Both start at 6:00pm. There is a post run fun meetup at 7:30 at a rotating list of bars and restaurants in Champaign-Urbana.
 
The Summer Fun Runs are scheduled for at several go arounds of either the 1 mile or 2 mile loop along the running paths through Meadowbrook Park in Urbana IL. We meet at the Windsor Road Pavilion at Windsor Rd and Vine St.
 
The Winter Fun Runs are a 3 mile loop once or twice through campus, all on sidewalks with streetlights. Runners tend to park at the UofI Law Library lot (E15) at the corner of 4th St. & Pennsylvania, just east of the ARC. We meet at the ARC entrance at 201 E Peabody Drive to start the fun run. We very strongly encourage you to bring lights and wear reflective gear for your safety.
 
Please note, when conditions are bad the group may meet at the U of I Armory to use the indoor track (any last minute notices are posted on our Facebook pages). UofI charges a small fee ($3 individual/$5 family) to use this facility if you are not a campus recreation member.
 
Wednesday: Speedwork begins at 6pm. Come participate in a fun and different workout each week. Runners of all speeds are welcome to attend. Meeting locations vary so check the weekly email.
 
Thursday: 4 mile route starting at 6:00pm from Riggs Beer Company on High Cross Road (check out the weekly updates to confirm).
 
Board Meetings: Third Tuesdays at 7:15pm at the Urbana Free Library in the Satthertwaite conference room in the basement.  Check out the agendas here.
