Rapid Thigh Movement

“Residency is a marathon, not a sprint”

Founded in 2015, Rapid Thigh Movement (the Peoria MedPeds + friends running club) is the premiere resident running club in the United States. It is also is the oldest residency-based running group in the United States.

Membership to RTM is free. No running experience is necessary — only a desire to run and hang out with your fellow residents.

RTM tries to participate in one race per month. Race distances range from 5K to half marathons. Past races have included: the Peoria Jaycees Firecracker 5000, Detweiler at Dark, the Arthritis Foundation Jingle Bell Run, the Peoria Whiskeydaddle Marathon, the Illinois Marathon, the Springfield Half Marathon, and the Quad Cities Half Marathon.
