About the ERC

Our History

 

The Evanston Running Club was formed in 1973 by a group of Evanston runners at the YMCA indoor track who wanted to connect with other local runners. The club was incorporated in 1975 with Bruce Holmes as president. The club, in addition to helping runners meet other runners, provided monthly educational programs, promoted friendly competitions with Sunday morning races, published a monthly newsletter, organized social events, and worked with other groups to set up larger, local races. Forty years later, the club has about 500 members of all ages and abilities. Read more out our MILESTONES here.
