We meet Tuesdays at 6:30 pm and Saturdays at 9:00 am all year round, rain or shine, at the Totem Pole located just east of the intersection of Addison and Lake Shore Drive. We offer a 3 mile course to run or walk, and running courses of 4, 5, and 6 mile distances. All paces are welcome. Someone will run or walk with you at your pace for whatever distance you want to go.

Periodically throughout the year, FRFW Chicago offers various training programs free of charge to club members. Our offerings range from “Couch to 10K” programs to programs designed to build speed and endurance.

In 2018, Frontrunners Chicago offered a Couch to 10K training program which culminated with Proud to Run and a 10K to Half Marathon training program that will culminated in the Rainbow Half. Both programs were coached by Dan Solera and were offered free of charge to all dues paying members of the club.
