Mission Statement

Oak Park Runners Club’s and Good Life Race’s mission is to encourage participation in the sport of running in the Oak Park, IL and surrounding communities guided by the four core values of the Club: openness, preparedness, resilience, and camaraderie. Openness is being inclusive to all ages, abilities, ethnicities, races, genders, and sexual orientations. Preparedness is providing resources for runners to stay fit and lead and active and healthy lives. Resilience is maintaining physical and mental fortitude in all running conditions and in life. Camaraderie is fostering friendships and fellowship among our members and in our community.
