2020 Banquet

 Registration is closed for this event

Please join us for our annual banquet to celebrate accomplishments of our club, present awards to special club members and enjoy a buffet! 

Doors open at 5, dinner at 6, voting and awards at 7.

We will have our annual banquet at the Cityview Events Center in downtown Champaign (above the Amtrak station). We'll also have some new award categories, and an after party! The banquet is family-friendly, and the venue is accessible by car and transit options. We are charging a per person fee to help offset the costs associated with this event.

Our annual banquet celebrates the accomplishments of our club, and we want to share the best stories of the runners in our community at the banquet. We have decided to refresh our award designations to better meet that goal. Our new award categories have parallels to the old awards, but with a new twist and approach, we hope to see a more diverse set of club members honored with their stories being told at the annual banquet.

Guidelines: You may nominate any club member for any award. The Board will review all submissions and select winners. Self nominations are permitted. All awards will be presented at our annual banquet on Saturday, January 25, 2020. 

Nominations for awards will be accepted soon.  

Menu, parking and other information is here (2019 version).
