Meet at our favorite local eatery, Fat Cat, in the back room. We'll brave the cold for 3 miles then return for a $5 burger! Join us! Running in the cold is easier with company! All are welcome - group pace tends to hover around 10 min mile.
Though Chicago is full of devoted runners, many of the groups meet in Lincoln Park. But why head down there? We've got beautiful stretches of lakefront path and terrific, fun neighborhoods to run through right here in Uptown. The goal of this group is to connect with other runners in the area and find running buddies!
Organizers will host 2-3 runs a week, but all members host runs themselves. Want company on your 6:00 am 6 mile run each Wednesday morning? Post the run! Want to run a 9 min pace for 4 miles on a Thursday afternoon? Schedule it! Think it would be fun to run 3 then go to one of our nifty neighborhood restaurants for a beer? So do I! Anyone can host a run!
We began in 2012 and we are now over 700 runners strong, and this group is what we make it! Looking forward to connecting with more Uptown runners!
