    Long term volunteer needs: We need a new web team master, a newsletter editor and will need new board members in the coming months. You do NOT need to regularly attend club events to do these jobs, but must be able to commit to them for at least a year. We are also always looking for volunteers to help with things like race timing.
     
     
    Tuesday Fun Run: Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. at Meadowbrook Park in Urbana (at the intersection of Windsor and Vine - there is a parking lot and you can park on both sides of Vine as you approach the park). We will start out with a timed-ish mile running west and then south, followed by one or more two mile loops continuing in the same direction. Not sure you're up for a fast mile? The Relaxed-Pace Running Group (RPRG) does a 11-15 minute mile pace and walking is welcome.
     
    The fun run will switch to a new winter route on October 30 - they will meet at the Law Library lot (4th and Pennsylvania - easy access from Florida and plenty of spots for free after 5!) and run a new 3 mile loop - all on sidewalks with streetlights - east on Peabody to First, south to Windsor (yes, there IS a sidewalk), east to 4th and back north to the start.  
     
    Post Run: 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!
