Half and Full Marathon Training

Program Directors - Anne Shipman and Rachel Head

Whether your goal is to win the Chicago Marathon or cross the finish line at the Illinois Half Marathon -- this marathon training group allows you to chase your goals with friends. Marathons will test your body and mind, so join a group of experienced runners and leaders that will help prepare you for each step.

The Lake Run Club has changed the format of the marathon training group to a FREE opportunity to run with others (with LRC membership). Join us for group runs on Saturday mornings at 7:30 am and Sunday mornings at 8:00 am. The group meets at the Coffeehouse in Uptown Normal (114 E Beaufort St). Water and Gatorade will be provided at points along the trail. You can run whatever distance and route you choose. Watch the Lake Run Club Facebook page for announcements and updates.

We will be meeting at the Coffeehouse and beginning at 7:30 am Saturdays and 8:00 am on Sundays.
