Upcoming Fun Non-Competitive Events



Back By Popular Demand, our 6 Leg Marathon will run from May 11th-June 29th. That's eight weeks to complete 6 legs of the Marathon. The Lake Bloomington, Inner Loop Course is 4.37 miles.  We meet at Lake Bloomington each of the Thursday nights.  The cost is $15 if you would like a 6 Leg T-Shirt, or without a shirt is free to participate.

LRC’s 6 Leg Marathon offers a chance to finish a MARATHON in just 8 weeks.
The 6 Leg Marathon starts May 11, and continues until June 29 th . That’s right, you have 8 weeks to complete
a marathon – perhaps the longest time limit to finish of any marathon. Plus it may be the most FUN ever and
is almost certainly the EASIEST marathon ever. Plus, it’s a great way to train for the LR Park to Park 5 Mile
The 4.37 mile course from the Lake Run is an accurate 1/6 th of a marathon. Over the 8 weeks, this beautiful
course will transform from it’s blush of spring to a show of summer’s best.
To participate, just join us at Lake Bloomington on Thursday nights, at 5:30 PM and run the 4.37 mile course
on 6 of the available 8 evenings. Or, if it’s more convenient for you, you can run whenever you can and self-
report your fishing time for each required run. Complete 6 runs and you’ll be a 6 Leg Marathon Finisher!!
And as a BONUS, if you ran the shorter course at the Lake Run, your finishing time counts as one of the 6
required runs for The 6 Leg Marathon!
The Cost for this marathon is just $15. That’s less than you would expect to pay for a 5K! Don’t want a shirt?
Then this is a FREE Marathon, compliments of THE LAKE RUN CLUB!
If you want the shirt, just complete all six of required runs and you’ll get a magnificent technical
6 Leg Marathon Finisher Shirt. Great for running in hot weather – or wearing to that Fourth of July party, as
you casually mention you just finished running a MARATHON!

Record your miles here!

May 25th at Lake Bloomington


We have several options, 5K, 4.37, 12K or even 10 miles (if you want to start early)

Flash ASE – 4 PM - April 1, in El Paso
We’re having our first ASE (Another Stupid Event) this Saturday, and in keeping with our name
and tradition, this ASE will be this Saturday, April FOOLS Day. Also, for the first time, we’ll be at
The Local Tap - Craft Kitchen & Alehouse in El Paso.
Our ASE’s are just for fun and a chance to run a new or different course, meet some old or
make some new running friends and get a bit of exercise. There are no awards, no timing
except for whatever you do yourself, and NO Cost to participate. You’ll have the option of
three different planned distances – a two mile route for walkers or anyone wanting a quick run,
a 5K and a 5 mile route. All three are entirely in El Paso. We’ll provide runners with water and
Gatorade somewhere along the routes.
The Local Tap is at 201 S Fayette St. in El Paso, IL. Fayette St. is Old US Rt. 51 and the Tap is
located in a former Dairy Queen. We’ll plan to start when they open at 4:00 PM. After your run
you will find The Local Tap is a family-friendly restaurant and brewery that serves savory food,
delicious drinks, and an assortment of local craft brews.
And, of course, at an ASE if you don’t feel like running, you’ll be more than welcome to just
show up and socialize. Hope you can join us.
