What we're about

Clocktower Runners is an established Chicago running club offering free marathon training during the summer. However we are still very active during the winter as well- Come run with us!

During the "off season" we meet every Saturday morning @ 8:00 am, starting from the Waveland Clocktower on Chicago's lakefront (Lakeview area). We have some runners training for Spring races but also some that are just keeping active during the winter months.

Pace and distance are up to each individual runner, but most people typically run between 6 and 12 miles. We also gather for coffee and bagels afterward to chat about future races and fun runs.
