    Lake Shore Park Track practice is at Lake Shore Park (808 N Lake Shore Drive) on Tuesday mornings starting at 6 a.m.  Track Practice is open to all levels and is free if you bring your own workout.  Track workouts emphasize interval training, a key to success to improve your running speed, efficiency and form.

    If you’d like coaching, our sponsor Fast & Fit Coaching is offering a run coaching special in conjunction with this workout: You’ll get a customized weekly track workout along with instruction and feedback on how to improve your running form. These workouts coincide with the Tuesday morning practice sessions.  

    The cost for coaching is $160 for the full season (through the marathon into fall), 10 sessions for $125, or $15 for a single session. All new people are entitled to a free trial session, but everyone must RSVP to Michelle by registering for this event.

    Chicago's Fifth Annual Premier Teddy Bear Century Ride! This is a no drop ride up to Wisconsin and back.

    Further information:

    Purpose: We want to make sure that everyone can experience an intimidation-free 100 mile ride.

    Pace: The pace will be as slow as necessary to keep the group together.

    Route: 100 miles on asphalt, including over 15 miles on bike paths, and minimizing heavy traffic routes. There will be stops for coffee, lunch, and snacks.

    Sag vehicle: We are looking for volunteers to drive a sag vehicle to carry warm clothes (see below) and to be available to help with mechanical difficulties

    Be prepared for cold weather: jackets, gloves, shoe covers, hats, and knee warmers are suggested

    Post-ride meetup: TBD

    Bears: We all ride with a Teddy Bear on our bikes. A small Teddy Bear will be given to each rider who RSVPs. A $10 donation is requested to pay for the Teddy Bear (plus an extra to be donated to the Lurie's Children's Hospital)

    Please make sure your bike is in good working condition. See the checklist at

    • CARA Board (Diversey & Lake Front Path)

    Muffin Run Sundays 9am November - May.

    A relaxed 1- hour run (sometimes with challenging weather) followed by brunch. The Muffin Runs are free (except for brunch!) and leave at 9:00 am Sundays from the CARA Board (Diversey and the lakefront running path). Since there will be varying paces, the only rule is that everyone end up at the brunch spot ~10:00 am.

    Since it’s more fun with more people, sign up here to lead:

    Your only duties are to make sure people join you for muffin run, show up for the run, and you get to pick the brunch spot. You may create a FB invite, post on the forum to get the word out.

    Muffin Run leaders earn 0.5 RAV points for leading a run. Earn another 0.5 RAV point by taking a photo of the group before the run and posting it on this thread.

Thank you to our Sponsors!
