CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2014 RIVER-TO-RIVER TEAMS:

LISLE A-TRAIN came in 2nd and the LISLE WINDRUNNERS came in 11th in their division. 240 teams from 9 states competed. 

BACKGROUND

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.
