Seeking volunteers for a community running partnership between the Chicago Area Runners Association and the Chicago Park District.
'Go Runs are organized, timed, FREE 1 Mile and 5K runs in local parks with the objective of activating neighborhood parks, building communities and encouraging active lifestyle through running and volunteerism. 'Go Runs aim to become a core part of neighborhood culture, encouraging organic community engagement at, and long after, each run.
We are hosting 'Go Runs every Saturday at 9:00am from May 21 to July 9. These will occur at Humboldt Park, Warren Park and Washington Park each date. Volunteer shifts begin no earlier than 7:00am and are completed no later than 11:00am.
‘Go Runs are open to everyone who is interested in coming out to their neighborhood park to race, run, jog, walk or volunteer. Long-time runners, newcomers, families and children are invited to take part. The volunteers at each ‘Go Run are as important to the mission of the program as are the runners and walkers. Volunteers are not only needed to help support each run, but also to encourage greater community engagement at each ‘Go Run.
Volunteers will receive detailed instruction prior to their volunteer date. Volunteers may sign up online at cararuns.org/gorun or you may reply to me for group sign up.
