Winter Running in Chicago 

Stay strong this season with our favorite running groups and winter events

Try as we may, we can’t run away from the changing of seasons.

So why not run into it?

Research suggests that many of us will use colder weather as a reason to skip exercise.

Outdoor exercise, like running during the cooler months, can help you stay consistent with your physical activity and boost your vitamin D exposure.

Our running partners are here to provide support and community – so you can run safely, strongly, and with a group of great folks…. anytime of the year!
