We are excited to announce that the Steamboat Classic, Running Central, Illinois Valley Striders, and ShaZam Racing are partnering up again to bring RC-Team Steam to the community of Central Illinois.

RC-Team Steam is ideal for intermediate and experienced Runners who are looking to increase their fitness level to achieve their running goals in preparation for the Steamboat Classic 4 Mile, 15K, or any summer 10K and half marathon. NOTE: “Intermediate and experienced runner” has nothing to do with pace per mile. Rather, it is one’s ability and willingness to participate in a structured training program with 2 workouts per week and one long run.

Participants will take part in a refined training program that will help you accomplish your running goals and take your training to the next level!

*Note that Steamboat Classic race registration is not included with RC-Team Steam registration.  All RC-Team Steam participants will receive a $10 Steamboat Classic race discount after registering for the training program.
