Charity Training Program

Work with CARA to achieve your fundraising and athletic goals

The Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA) has created a charity runner training and membership program that will allow charitable organizations of all sizes and interests to raise additional funds in a fun and exciting way by taking part in our training programs and the many amazing events we have developed for 2018.

CARA knows that taking on 26.2 miles is a big accomplishment for runners and many want to put in that effort on behalf of a worthy cause. This is a one-of-a-kind team building experience that will create lasting memories and relationships!
