    Looking to dip your foot into the wonderful world of ultra running? Clinton Lake 30 miler will be on March 23, 2019. We only have about 20 spots left after registration opened yesterday night. Visit Ultrasignup to learn more about the race and registerhttps://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=59580
     
    Want to direct the Freedom 5k? The Champaign County Freedom Celebration Foundation is looking for a new volunteer race director for the Freedom 5k, which is run annually on July 4. Proceeds from each year's race pays for the following year's fireworks, so you can really make a bang! Contact Marc Mills for more information.
     
    Spring marathon training registration is now open! Crazy enough to want to run a 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! Both our half and full spring marathon training programs are open for registration now! Find more here http://secondwindrunningclub.org/marathontraining
     
    Long term volunteer needs: We need a new web team master, a newsletter editor and will need new board members in the coming months. You do NOT need to regularly attend club events to do these jobs, but must be able to commit to them for at least a year. We are also always looking for volunteers to help with things like race timing.
     
    Annual Banquet is Saturday, January 26! In 2019, we will be shaking things up and having our annual banquet at the City 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. Doors open at 5, dinner at 6, voting and awards at 7. Register here: http://secondwindrunningclub.org/civicrm/event/info?id=39&reset=1
     
    Tuesday Fun Run: Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. at the law library lot at Pennsylvania and Fourth on campus. Lights and reflective gear is strongly recommended. The fun run switched to a new winter route on October 30 - they will meet at the Law Library lot (4th and Pennsylvania - easy access from Florida and plenty of spots for free after 5!) and run a new 3 mile loop - all on sidewalks with streetlights - east on Peabody to First, south to Windsor (yes, there IS a sidewalk), east to 4th and back north to the start.  
     
    Post Run: 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!

    November 20: Murphys on campus (it's fall break)
    November 27: Guidos in Champaign
    December 4: Crane Alley in Urbana
     
    Board meeting is TOMORROW night (not the usual 3rd Tuesday). Agenda forthcoming.
     
    Speed work: Wednesday at 6pm. We will meet at the Armory on 4th and Gregory but run outside. Come participate in a fun and different workout each week. Runners of all speeds are welcome to attend and speedwork may alternate meeting locations.
