Often Running is proud to have and support its own racing team. Made of dedicated and talented local runners, the team has its fair share of great athletes, from NCAA Champions, sub 2:30 marathoners, Boston Qualifiers, ultra-marathon runners, and Ironman triathletes. The team is made of two women and seven men, all of whom are Central Illinois residents. The Often Running Racing Team was established in 1996 by our manager, Mitch Hobbs. The team is sponsored by Saucony.
In addition to participating in events across the country, the team is heavily involved in our local community. Our members support the Lake Run Club and their programs as well as the Starved Rock Runners Club and their programs by volunteering their time and expertise. Additionally, current and past team members are involved in our local schools as volunteer coaches for junior high and high school cross-country and track.
