Go Run Chicago

 



'Go Run Chicago is a series of organized Saturday morning community runs open to everyone interested in coming out to their neighborhood park to race, run, jog, walk or volunteer. Long-time runners, newcomers, families and children are invited to take part.
 

A volunteer-led, neighborhood-centered initiative, the weekly runs strengthen community and encourage healthy and active lifestyles through running and volunteerism. The program is hosted and managed by the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA).
