    • Our televised group check presentation is scheduled for 9:09 PM.  All are invited to participate.
  • Things to bring on run day:
    • Please bring an extra towel to cover your bus seat.  Peoria Charter Coach gives us a massive discount for the run; let’s not thank them by sweating up their seats!
    • We recommend bringing a towel, a couple changes of running clothes, even an extra pair of running shoes. I like to towel off and put on a fresh shirt at lunch or if I take a break during the day. If it rains and your shoes get wet, a fresh, dry pair of running shoes may save you from some extra blisters. Speaking of blisters, I recommend bringing an anti-chaffing product such as Body Glide or Two-Toms. We’ll be out in the sun and heat all day, so a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are good ideas also.
    • Your official run shirt to change into
