Itasca Runners Club
The Itasca Runners Club was formed in 2005, bringing together local runners with varying abilities and with a common interest in running. The club has approximately 25 active members. We welcome new recruits or people visiting from out of town who just want to meet up with a friendly group to run with.
The Chicago Area Runners Association -- CARA --is dedicated to running advocacy in Chicago and the suburbs. CARA has grown into the organization that championed the running movement across Chicagoland, helping runners run better, farther, faster and with more fun by clearing paths to training, social, outreach, and advocacy programs, while promoting friendships and personal fulfillment. The Itasca Oktoberfast 5K is part of the CARA Runners Choice Circuit for 2018.
