Evanston Running Club is suspending all official club runs following CDC guidelines until further notice. We will continue to evaluate COVID-19 situation and update group run schedule accordingly.


Here’s what we are most looking forward to:

  • Monday night runs along the lake listening to the waves crash on the rocks
  • Selfies posted from the Crack of Dawn crew on Tuesday mornings
  • Running on the golf course and feeling like a bandit
  • Thinking I might show up at the Thursday morning run but then snuggling back in bed
  • Drinking several beers at Temperance after a run to rehydrate
  • Getting inspiring daily emails from our beloved run leaders 
  • Coming home muddy and happy from our monthly trail runs
  • Gathering like an army for the Saturday Morning Long Run 
  • Asking “how far are you going to go today?” to everyone around me
