The newly formed Lincoln Area
Running Club, or LARC, is encouraging those with new fitness goals
and seasoned runners to become part of the club. The club recently
became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization through the Road Runners
Club of America.
"We started as a group on Facebook and saw there was a good amount
of interest in the community," said Tony Newton, founding member and
president. "Our main objective is to bring together a community of
runners that can help each other achieve their running goals."
ages, paces and ability levels are welcome to join LARC. The
benefits of becoming a member include a 10 percent discount at Often
Running in Normal, a $5 discount at LARC races and free training
programs put on by the club.
LARC members also meet for weekly runs.
"We are currently meeting on Sunday mornings for group runs at
6:30 a.m.," said Newton. "But we might add more group runs or change
the time depending on the needs of our members."
