Sessions start at 6:30 pm and will run until approximately 8:00 pm. They will be held primarily on the track at Concordia University in River Forest, as well as on safe roads (either in Riverside or an alternate location to be determined). The second half program begins on June 20th. Sorry, no refunds once you start the program.

2015 Speedwork Program

Wednesday night track workouts for OPRC members begin on April 29 and end in October.

We meet at the Concordia University track in River Forest on Division Street west of Harlem Avenue at 6:30 PM. All levels are welcome and we encourage you to come out whenever possible even if you can't make it every week.

These are FREE for OPRC members only.

Trail Runs

Once a month from Spring through Fall, OPRC meets at a location in Oak Park and carpools to run a local Chicago area trail. Trails are generally within 30 miles, and include locations such as Argonne/Waterfall Glen, Prairie Path, Salt Creek, North Branch River Trail, or the Lakefront Trail. These trail runs offer variety so members can be exposed to the great trails in the area; they also offer variety in your training by adding hills, soft surface, etc.

Members, log in and check out the Calendar tab to find out about the next trail run.

Saturday Morning Fun Runs

Ranging in distance from 10 miles and longer for more experienced runners, our Saturday runs are ideal if you're training for a medium- or long-distance race, or if you just want to keep up a good base of weekend miles. Runs start from Home & Madison Streets in Oak Park at 7:30 a.m. sharp November–April and 7:00 a.m. sharp May–October. We run year-round in all weather. A few runners do not go the whole route, turning back at intermediate points.
