What we're about

The Chicago Beer Runners

Looking for fun, social runners interested in meeting other fellow runners in a relaxed, noncompetitive environment? Join us for biweekly runs around Lakeview, followed by a cold beverage or three. All abilities from beginner to experienced welcome. We don't break into formal pace groups, but with people who average anywhere between 7 and 14 minute miles, you'll usually find someone to run with.

We meet year-round and have a lot of fun whether it's 85 and sunny or 10 and snowing. Beer Runners don't stop. And we meet throughout the year for races and parties, too. Join the fun!

Monday Night Run and Drinks

Lincoln Station

Beer Runners meets at Lincoln Station on Monday and Wednesday evenings. We meet at the bar, run about 3 miles, and then meet back at the bar for drinks and food. Look for people wearing running gear, we usually grab a table inside and to the left past the bar near the pool tables. If you need to drop any bags, the staff normally does a good job of watching things for us, and you can ask the bartender if you can leave a bag in their closet. Please RSVP if you plan to attend. See you Monday!

North Pond Route (3.35mi) : https://bit.ly/2Ht0wCp - Wrightwood to Lakeview Ave, paths around Diversey Harbor and North Pond, then Deming to Orchard to Fullerton. ---
