What started as two friends enjoying a run around Lake Bloomington on a Thursday night is now Central Illinois’ premier run club; providing fun and challenging races, programs, services, and social events for all ages and abilities. The Lake Run Club is a not-for-profit organization that’s powered by volunteers to promote running and racing in the Bloomington-Normal area.
Our community is open to everyone, and is accepting new members. Whether you’re a casual runner or a marathon enthusiasts, we’re looking forward to running with you on many future adventures. We may take running seriously, but the fun and friendly roots of the club are still alive and well, and we want you to join in on the fun. See why the Lake Run Club is a thriving community of over 700 members.
Each race day takes hours and hours of preparation by runners and organizers in order to do their best. In addition to providing training programs to bring out the best in you, we offer volunteer opportunities where members of the Lake Run Club community can support running in Central Illinois.
The Lake Run Club sponsors five races throughout the year, including St. Patrick’s Day Run, The Lake Run, Park to Park, Dog Days, and our Evergreen Lake 5K run. For all area events during the year, view our race calendar.
