Run With Us

We offer focused, professionally coached training programs throughout the year in partnership with RUN Oak Park. The next session will kick off in April, for our 2021 5k/10k Training Program. Running with a mask is required, experience is not! We love beginners.

Begin, restart, or refine your running practice. We'll meet for a guided group run on Sundays and Thursdays or run your miles solo and check in with the team on Final Surge and our private Facebook group. You’ll receive a plan customizable for your distance, skill or event goal; experienced, certified coaches; access to our video library of runner-specific strength workouts;
official RUN Oak Park™ Training Team swag; and much more!
8 weeks; Sun/Thu; Apr 11 – May 30

In non-pandemic times, we also offer a free group run every Wednesday at 6:30 pm that departs from Lively. We run a 5K loop and all paces are welcome (yes, even walkers!). Request to join the group on Facebook at to keep up-to-date with our awesome running friends.
