Couch to 4 Mile

Elmhurst Running Club Couch to 4 Mile Program

We are looking for people who want to start an exciting journey in the running community.
Are you looking to get healthy, both physically and mentally?
Do you want someone to motivate you, and hold you accountable?
Are you someone that doesn’t consider yourself a runner, but wants to become one?
Have you been waiting for a reason to get off the couch?
Now is the time!!
Please join the ERC for a 12 week journey to your  first 4 Mile race. This program is designed for the person who is just beginning their running journey. We will start out walking with some running, and progress to a 4 Mile Run!!  This year the race we will be training for is the ERC’s very own 4 on the 4th Race.
You can do it, as long as you make the decision to try. We will help you achieve this goal!
We will meet Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:00 pm.  
We start our journey Monday, April 10th.

Where:  Meet at the Gazebo at the Prairie Path and Spring Road in Elmhurst.
Cost:  The only cost of this program is to be a member of the Elmhurst Running Club.  Single membership is $20.00 while a Family Membership is $30.00.  With a club membership you have the opportunity to be a part of all of our club’s training programs and social events.
