INFORMATION

The River to River (R2R) race is a renowned annual 80 mile relay race held in southern Illinois in mid-April. 240 eight member teams from around the country are entered with many, including the Lisle Windrunners, repeating year after year. Our club has been entering 2 or  3 teams since it's inception in 1988. It is a very entertaining and rewarding experience which always improves the teamwork and  camaraderie of club runners.

The course starts near the Mississippi river by Wolf Lake, IL and proceeds over 80 miles of hilly and curvy 2 lane highways to Golconda on the banks of the Ohio river. The 8 members of each team run 3 cycles of approximately 3.4 miles each in a specific order. All members of each team ride together in a 15 passenger van.

The entire trip covers a three day weekend with the van trip on Friday to a motel in Marion, IL where they will stay through Saturday night. The race is held on Saturday with celebrations, snacks and awards afterward in Golconda and a drive back to Marion for dinner. Breakfast and the return trip to the Chicago area is completed on Sunday.

The Route. Start north of Wolf Lake close to the Mississippi, finish 80 miles later at Golconda on the Ohio River.

The 2005 River-to-River relay was completed on April 16th with almost perfect weather. Three club teams were entered - A-Train, Windrunners and War & Feet. A-Train led the way finishing in 2nd place handicapped, the Windrunners finished 9th and War & Feet finished first in fun. Everybody had so much fun that early enrollment for the 2006 relay (April 22, 2006) has already begun.
