Uptown Runners Fall 2018 Gear Store
Finally, our Fall Gear Store is ready! Note that you can have items shipped to you directly, or, if you choose "Pick Up with Uptown Runners" that means I'll go pick everything up, then post two dates for you to come get them from me. I'll host both of these Pick Up events at Fat Cat. I will choose dates once everything's printed and ready. Note, too, that some items require a minimum order. Read the fine print. Store closes 9/21 so order soon! Here's the link:

What we're about

Welcome to Uptown Runners!

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 a few runs a week, but eventually we'd like committed members host runs, too! If you are interested in hosting a run, please contact me! 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 900 runners strong, and this group is what we make it! Looking forward to connecting with more Uptown runners in 2018!

Questions? Ideas? Just email me! My personal email reaches me fastest -

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
