Oak Park Runners Club is one of the oldest and most active running groups in the Chicago area; we’ve been going strong since 1982. We currently have over 280 members, which is a record high. Our group runs and accompanying socials are more popular than ever. Our Monday night, Wednesday night, and Saturday morning runs each attract 20 – 40 runners, with a variety of paces. We run all year long.
Our club is a registered 501(c)(3) and an all volunteer organization. We proudly own and produce the Good Life Race, which includes a 5K, Youth Mile, and Junior Dash. We also volunteer at several other races including the Chicago Marathon, where we have been managing a water station for over 25 years.
Oak Park is in our name and it’s where we are based; however, about 30% of our members live in neighboring towns including Forest Park and Berwyn.
We are a member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), which means that we carry general liability insurance and follow best practices regarding safety, quality, and inclusivity. Additionally, our Good Life Race Director is a certified RRCA Race Director.
