Clocktower Runners

A Chicago Independent Running Club offering Free Marathon Training

About The Clocktower Runners Club

Clocktower Runners comprises a group of individuals that began the journey of marathoning years ago and through the experience have found an opportunity to bring together others to reach similar goals.

The organization was founded in 2008 with the goal of creating a running club that provides a free marathon training program for participants interested in running the Chicago Marathon.

The Clocktower Runners organization is a State of Illinois 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit Corporation and is tax exempt from Federal Income Tax of the Internal Revenue Code.
