What we're about

Welcome to the Northside Movers and Shakers!

This group was originally started as the Uptown Runners in 2012 with a goal of hosting runs in and around Uptown and connecting runners. In 2021, it's been renamed to Northside Movers and Shakers and now events include other active events to get people out and enjoying the city. Check out our calendar for group runs, walks, hikes, bikes or other activities.

Got a fun idea and want to lead an event? Want to go open water swimming at Foster Beach at 6am? How about a walk and check out a new restaurant? Run on by the lakefront and grab beer and burgers afterwards? Let me know! It's easy! Just schedule it, show up, be nice and have fun.

Questions? Ideas? Message me through Meetup.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Walk For Peace #191

Bourgeois Pig Cafe

Going for a nice Sunday walk, hopefully, into the historic part of old town. Walk with your friends. Peace to all that enter. We'll leave the Bourgeois Pig at about 10:05 am. Should be about a 4 mile walk.

Guest Physical Therapist to Discuss Injury Prevention - Interested?

Folks, I had the good fortune to work with a super PT after a small hip ailment. She's a runner, too, and just wonderful. Any interest in having her come out one night to have her talk to us about injury prevention? I don't have a budget for this but if everyone chipped in $10 or $15 (depending on how many we get) we could make sure she's taken care of. If interested, please leave a comment and indicate if you'd prefer a weekday evening or weekend day so I can find a time that works for her and us! Thanks! Let's stay happy and healthy as we head into winter!

What To Wear?
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

This isn't a meeting, but a fun link on Runner's World that might be helpful around this time of year!

Massage info NOT a meetup
Needs a date and time

Lincoln Square Massage

I spoke to a few Uptown Runners about the massage clinic I work at. I wanted to follow up and post the info. Lincoln Square Massage is located at Hermitage & Lawrence (Ravenswood area). They offer 20% off for 1st time clients and have a 20% Early Bird discount for appointments before 2 pm Mon-Fri. There are many talented massage therapist. Read profiles and pic the person best for you!

Great seeing you all last night. Have a relaxing holiday season! Cheers, Becky
