Annual Award Nominations open! Please consider nominating your fellow clubmates for an award this year! The awards will be presented at the annual SWRC banquet in January. There are 13 categories, see the form for all of them. This year you can submit all of your nominations in one form :) However if you would like to submit them as you think of them, that's fine too. Please have all nominations in by December 12. Happy Running! https://goo.gl/forms/nDmW0VslDlIlIsr43
Crazy enough to want to run a(nother) marathon? Or maybe you’re only half crazy and 13.1 miles sounds like plenty. Second Wind Running Club has a marathon/half marathon training program to help you go the distance! Sign up online through December 15 for $65 for an individual and $55 for each additional family member. This program starts in January and ends at the Illinois Marathon. Your registration fee includes a year of Second Wind membership, a long sleeve tech shirt, and a post party, plus a 17 week training program with multiple levels for first time and more advanced marathoners.
Want to be a pacer for spring marathon training? Sign up now! Find the form linked on the marathon training page or click here to go straight to it.
Help wanted: we are looking for volunteers for several positions in the club - see the ad in the bimonthly newsletter, or find all of them here.
Fun Run: Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. at the Armory on campus. We will meet at the Armory (4th and Gregory) until spring. The group meets and starts from the South West doors. 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: Scotty's 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, November 22 at 7pm at the Urbana Free Library.
Speedwork: Wednesday at 6pm to start . They will meet at the Armory (4th and Gregory) until spring. The group meets and starts from the South West doors (same place as the Tuesday winter runs). As long as the weather cooperates we will do workouts outdoors where it is lit so dress appropriately! Stadium ramps, parking ramps, South Quad etc are all fun options. Come participate in a fun and different workout each week. Runners of all speeds are welcome to attend!
