You Can Make a Difference!

CARA is a 365 days a year, all terrain, weather-proof believers in the extra mile. Since 1978 we’ve been stoking the fires of running in Chicagoland, celebrating all that makes our running community burn so bright.

Please consider making a financial contribution to CARA, and help us continue to provide the programs and services our running community deserves. Every single contribution helps.

We thank you for your consideration and continued support!

Volunteer with CARA!

Give back, get involved, and stay connected

Without the commitment and support of our volunteers, CARA would not run efficiently which is why we truly appreciate every one of them. No matter the task, our volunteers go above and beyond to give back to the community. We are fortunate enough to be surrounded and influenced by the most selfless volunteers around. Join our volunteer team and feel the joy of giving back!
