COVID-19 Updates & Safety
Guidelines updated September 5, 2020
The Chicago Area Runners Association, CARA, is a non-profit organization committed to serving and advocating for the local running community. With over 10,000 members, CARA is the nation’s third-largest local running organization, and for over 40 years, we have served as the voice of local runners.
CARA urges everyone to practice safe social distancing and to commit to COVID-19 related running safety guidelines until Phase 5 is reached. See our guidelines below for your running. Please see each program/event page for participant expectations and safety operations for specific CARA programs/events.
