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 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!

Our group is over 100 people strong, and this group is what we make it! Looking forward to connecting with more Uptown runners!

Questions? Ideas? Just email me!

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
