River to River Relay Photos:
The Lisle Windrunners running club was established in 1985 to serve regular runners in the western suburbs of Chicago. Our mission is to promote a lifetime of fitness with a level of competition when desired. Currently, there are 50+ individual members, both men and women with ages ranging from 25 to 82. The club sponsors regular training runs, a Windrunner racing circuit, one 10K race, monthly meetings, an annual awards & predictor breakfast, and relay teams for the annual River-to-River relay race in southern Illinois. Many of our members also compete in other circuits (CARA and Fox River mainly) with race distances ranging from 5K to marathons.
JOIN: Printable Application to join the club - only $20/year per family unit.
