In 2019, we will be shaking things up and having our annual banquet at the Cityview Events Center in downtown Champaign (above the amtrak station). We'll also have some new award categories, and an after party! The banquet is family-friendly, and the venue is accessible by car and transit options. We are charging a per person fee ($15/adult, $1/child under 12) to help offset the costs associated with this event.
Our annual banquet celebrates the accomplishments of our club, and we want to share the best stories of the runners in our community at the banquet. We have decided to refresh our award designations to better meet that goal. Our new award categories have parallels to the old awards, but with a new twist and approach, we hope to see a more diverse set of club members honored with their stories being told at the annual banquet.
Guidelines: You may nominate any club member for any award. The Board will review all submissions and select winners. Self nominations are permitted. All awards will be presented at our annual banquet on Saturday, January 26, 2019.
Nominations for awards are being accepted here through tomorrow.
Menu, parking and other information is here.
The Illinois Club Relays are scheduled for February 23, 2019. This is a fun event where you get a chance to try something different. Second Wind Running Club is usually represented by a handful of members, but it would be great to have a larger presence in 2019! Last year, members participated in the mile, 4x4 relay, and high jump, but there are lots of other events to choose from. If interested, please contact Laura Owen by January 15th. The cost is $10 per person per event, except for relays which are $5 per person. Payment is due the day of the meet. Location: University of Illinois Armory (505 East Armory Avenue, Champaign, IL 61820). If you aren't familiar, it is a 200 meter indoor track.
