Founded in 1983, the Second Wind Running Club is Champaign-Urbana's premier running club. Membership is open to all ages and levels, from beginning runners to seasoned runners. 


The following fun runs feature a run coordinator. We are a rain and shine group. If it’s raining and no lightning we will still meet. If we do cancel we will send an email and post on our Facebook page.

Weather related changes are usually posted by the fun run coordinators on social media (please join our Facebook group).
