The SRRC’s mission is to advance the running community in Springfield, IL and surrounding communities. Our top priority is to host and support area road races. The Club sponsors five races from April through December – the Lincoln Presidential Half Marathon (first Saturday in April), Women’s Distance Festival 2 Mile (second Saturday in July), Parade Run 2 Mile (State Fair Parade in August), Abe’s Amble 10K (last Sunday of State Fair in August), and the Frostbite Festival 2/10 Mile (first Sunday in December).
The SRRC organizes and supports training programs for beginning to advanced runners through the Half Wits (January – April), Abe’s Army (May – August), and Frost Toes (October – December) programs. Throughout the year, SRRC also hosts various fun runs and socials. The Club actively supports local high school track and cross country athletes through its scholarship program and provides technical and promotional assistance for dozens of races that raise money for local charities.
Being a member of the SRRC is a great way to meet fellow runners. Members also get discounts on Club-sponsored races as well as at many local businesses. Sign up today and join our running family!
