It's not too late to sign up for the good form running clinic! Tomorrow, Van from Body n' Sole will come to do a good form running clinic. He will be bringing the ipad that they use in the store to record video of each participant's gait, and offering guidance on what each individual runner can do to improve. It will take place in the grass near the shelter at 6pm. Many members have done this and it is really helpful to all runners, no matter what your focus is. HOWEVER! It costs $10, and you need to sign up in advance. The money will go to a local charity. You need to call Body n Sole at (217) 356-8926 to reserve your spot.
Also tomorrow, the Altra sales rep will be at the fun run. They will arrive at 6 pm and let people run in Altra shoes (https://www.altrarunning.com/) during the fun run. This is a great way to test out a new kind of shoes so I encourage everyone who is altra-curious to do it! They have a wider toe box and heel and are zero drop. A 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. Check out the schedule here - routes are not final for all weeks, but starting location and distance options are listed.
Volunteer at the Freedom 5k - now with more volunteer positions listed, including cleanup. Find the signup form here.
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: Huaraches Moreleon in Urbana (Washington and Philo) - #tacotuesday ! 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, June 20 at 7pm at the Urbana Free Library. Agenda here. Speedwork: Wednesday at 6pm. This week, we will meet at Orchard Downs in Urbana. 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.
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.
