The Broken Arrow Running Club was founded in Effingham, IL over 15 years ago by Rebecca Koester and Dan Lindley. The purpose of the club is to promote running as a healthy lifestyle for members of all ages and abilities while encouraging friendship and social interaction. Whether you are aiming to run a 5K, marathon PR, or just around the block, our family of runners is here to provide a fun and friendly environment to support you and your goals. All members receive a quarterly newsletter with a schedule of club events and race updates.
A non-denominational service will be held on Race Day at 7:00 on the lawn by registration area.
The Broken Arrow Running Club (BARR) is open to everyone young to old, walkers, joggers, to competitive runners and just about anyone looking to be part of a running community in the Effingham Area. Find out more about us.
