Have you ever said, “I should really start running!” or “It would be so amazing to run that block/5K/10/Marathon!” or “Who are those crazy people out there running in this weather?” Welcome to FRGML Running Club!

The Fox River Grove Memorial Library Running Club (FRGMLRC) is gearing up for its fourth year of miles (some easier than others!), trash talk, camaraderie, and fun! Our mission is simple: Create a team of people who will welcome everybody and every body - regardless of fitness level, to encourage one another, share tips, goals, and plans for a healthier way of life. We are currently 59 members strong. Some walk, some run, but we are always moving!

Members of the club participate in the annual Fox Chase 5K along with other local races and have earned our fair share of medals (and love to brag about them!) Many of our members also participate in the "Run the Year Challenge'" as teams striving to complete 2021 miles walking or running within the year.

We work with local businesses to offer discounted fitness opportunities. When we can safely do so, we will return to a monthly meeting schedule at a local pub. These meetings give us a chance to engage with guest speakers, who teach, train, and inspire us! We look forward to our next "FRGMLRC Bar-a-thon" and our inaugural "FRGMLRC Scavenger Hunt." We enjoy “Donut runs” on the last Saturday of each month, and plan other fun surprises, like a St. Patrick’s Day destination run! We are only limited by our imaginations.

Join us. Bring your ideas for health, fitness, and fun to the table. Contact Bridgett @ 847-639-2274 or via email at Bkaiser@frgml.org.
