Oak Park Runners Club is one of the oldest and most active running groups in the Chicago area. We run every Monday evening, Wednesday evening, and Saturday morning, all year.
We also have socials, destination runs, and monthly meetings. We compete on the CARA Circuit, host the Good Life Race, and volunteer at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and the Bank of America Chicago 13.1.
Oak Park, which is in our name, is where we are based. However, about 30% of our members live in neighboring towns including River Forest, Forest Park, Berwyn, Cicero, Elmwood Park, Melrose Park, Maywood, Berkeley, and Chicago!
Oak Park Runners Club is a registered 501(c)(3) organization, and a member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). Our Good Life Race 5K and Youth Mile courses are USA Track & Field (USATF) certified.
We also have a Facebook group and a Strava group for our members.
The family membership is for 2+ runners in the same household. Children only need to be members if they will run with us, or compete on our CARA Circuit team. Memberships are not refundable or transferable.
