Summer marathon training starts Saturday, June 24 at 7am! We will start with just 8 miles (broken into a three and a five mile loop), so even if you're not planning on running a fall marathon, there's a group run distance for you. Unlike our Spring training program, these runs are open to all club members.
 Fun Run:Tuesday at 6:30 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. Both these groups go in the opposite direction, so no matter your speed you'll see other club members! Post Run: Triptych in Savoy - by special request! 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!
 Speedwork:Wednesday at 6pm. This week, we will meet at Centennial High School in Champaign. Come participate in a fun and different workout each week. Runners of all speeds are welcome to attend and speedwork will alternate between meeting at Centennial and at Orchard Downs.
 Board meeting:Tuesday, June 20 at 7pm at the Urbana Free Library.

Summer weather and water reminder:
The club brings a cooler of water to the Tuesday night group runs, but no cups - bring your own bottle. Water is not provided at speedwork. In the event of severe weather/electrical storms, use caution and common sense when going on a run. Decisions to cancel fun runs and speedwork due to weather will be made in as timely a matter as possible.
