Where you run matters. Your running partners matter. And, what you run for matters. We recognize all of this, which is why we host guest speakers, organize special and regular running events, and sponsor local races. Join us and be active in the broader athletic community here: shop, race, and run local.
Our pro talks are a great opportunity for you to learn from and be inspired by professional athletes. We are proud to have hosted such champions as Craig Alexander, Kristin Armstrong, Dick Beardsley, Zola Budd, Mirinda Carfrae, Tim DeBoom, Dave Scott, and Chrissie Wellington. We’ve also hosted talks by Chicago Marathon director Carey Pinkowski, whose advice gives insight for our many local runners into the details of the area’s marquee marathon.
