CARA

Marathon Training Programs

Since our program's start in 1989, we have helped tens of thousands of runners complete 26.2. Our popular 18-week programs have long been Chicago's premier group training program, serving newcomers and experienced runners alike.

CARA runners enjoy access to training sites scattered across the city and suburbs. With CARA training you will never have to go it alone. Your pace group leader and fellow participants will give you the Power of the Group that has gotten CARA runners to the finish line more than any other program in Chicagoland running.
