    Green Team Plogging Weekend: On September 29 and 30, join your fellow Second Wind Running Club members for a weekend of virtual plogging! “Plogging” is a Swedish/English term that refers to jogging, running, or walking while picking up trash, preferably incorporating lunges or squats in the pick-up part. This is a family-friendly activity that promotes both fitness and caring for our community. The “rules” and more about the event are here.

    Tuesday Fun Run: Tuesday at 6:00 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).

The Relaxed-Pace Running Group (RPRG) does a 11-15 minute mile pace and walking is welcome.
