Spring 2019 Chicago Run Events


Cook Count JTDC 2 Mile Race

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

3:00pm - 5:00pm - Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center (JTDC)

Chicago Run recently expanded programs to serve youth at the JTDC. Practices are held 3 days a week for 6 weeks culminating in race held in the facility exercise yard. Chicago Run coaches work closely with recreation staff at JTDC to provide trauma-sensitive coaching and a quality race experience for some of Chicago’s most vulnerable youth.

Note: volunteer opportunities are limited.

Universal Sole 4 Mile Classic

Thursday, May 16, 2019

6:00pm - 8:00pm - Montrose Harbor (map)

Be a running buddy or cheerleader for our Running Mates students and support them all the way to the Finish Line. Running Mates is an after-school program for 6-12th grade students. They train for 8 week seasons which culminate in a local 5k or 4 mile race. Volunteering at one of these races is a great way to support our runners whether you're pacing or cheering them on along the course!

Please email if you are interested in volunteering.
