Springfield runners are motivated individuals. In the next 3 months runners of all levels will be competing in various long distance disciplines. It could be a Triathlon, Ultra Marathon, Marathon, Half Marathon, or Muddy Buddy. With all the upcoming races, it would be great to get a roll call to find out what the Springfield athletes are doing. This could be helpful to know someone locally is doing the same race. Maybe with this information, you can even find training partners, lodging information or even to get you to commit.
So what race are you doing?
BTW, there are various groups training for the Chicago Marathon. If you don't have lodging, don't worry. The Courtyard by Marriott in Oakbrook Terrace, IL is holding 20 rooms for members of the Springfield Running Club during the Chicago Marathon weekend. These rooms are available at $94.00 per night. Members of the Springfield Running community have stayed at this hotel in previous years. It's clean, quiet and easy access to downtown Chicago (20 min. away). For anyone that is interested, they can call 800-321-2211, and mention the Springfield Running Club block of rooms & the $94 rate. The rooms being held are for Sat & Sun nights (Oct. 6 & 7). If anyone has any questions, they can contact Fred Alves at home: 483-7267 or send him an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or can call him at work: 757-8670 ext. 2462.
I know there is a big Springfield contingent doing Lewis and Clark Marathon/Half Marathon. Where is everyone staying?
