Fun Run: Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. at the Armory on campus. For the month of December the route varies slightly to visit Candlestick Lane in Urbana (see attached map!). We meet at the Armory (4th and Gregory) until spring. The group meets and starts from the South West doors for up to 6 miles. The Relaxed-Pace Running Group (RPRG) does a 11-15 minute mile pace and walking is welcome. No matter your speed you'll be with other club members!
Post Run: Scottys Brewpub in Savoy. Don't plan to run? Come out at 7:30. Got an idea where we should go? Or feedback (good OR bad) about a place we went? Email me!
Board Meeting: Tuesday, December 18 at 6pm at a board member's home. Please email if you are interested for the exact location!
Speedwork: Wednesday at 6pm to start around 6:10 . They will meet in the Armory (4th and Gregory) until spring. The group will run inside the Armory from now until spring. It costs $3 if you do not have a valid i-card or pass to enter (season passes can be a good option if you want to run inside as the weather gets bad). Come participate in a fun and different workout each week. Runners of all speeds are welcome to attend!
