• Week of August 31

    Saturday morning at 7 a.m. is our next marathon training run. It will take place on the Lake of the Woods paved trail. The distances will be 18 miles for the marathoners and 9 miles for the half-marathoners. Gatorade and water will be available at the start/finish. We will begin at the Crowley Road parking lot north of the high school. This lot fills up fast. There is a lot off of Route 47 just north of the interstate. If you are running late or even will be just on time it might be better to park in that lot and start by running west, towards us.

    Our Fun Run is at 6:30 Tuesday night at Meadowbrook Park with the Relaxed-Pace Running Group (RRPG) meeting at 6:20. Following the fun run join us for dinner and drinks at Guido's in downtown Champaign.

    Wednesday is speedwork at Centennial high school track. Be warmed up and ready to start by 6 p.m. Please bring your own water as none is available.

    Thursday night is trail night. Get out to the Lake of the Woods in Mahomet for a five mile trail run at 6 p.m. It starts in the Crowley Road parking lot north of the high school.

  • 2015 Monumental Marathon Training Program

    Are you ready to start thinking about a fall marathon or half-marathon? The Indianapolis Monumental Marathon is becoming a tradition for our club as a destination race. Whether you choose the marathon or half-marathon, Indianapolis is a great place to race. Our summer long runs will again target the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon, which this year is on November 7. Our long runs, combined with our Tuesday night fun runs and Wednesday night track workouts, are a great way to get ready for the fall race of your choice. However, I hope that you will consider joining us in Indianapolis on November 7. More race information can be found at and training program details are here 2015 SWRC Monumental Marathon Training Program.pdf. Any additional questions can be sent to me at
