Support for All

"I love the fact that CARA caters to ALL of the Chicago area runners...not just the fast runners, the Chicago runners or the young runners...I am an older, heavier, slower suburban runner, and yet CARA meets all of my running club needs...CARA also meets the needs of runners of every distance, from new runners who are running their first 5K to runners doing several marathons and/or ultra-marathons a year!"
-Tom Joens
