For 2020, the traditional CARA Ready to Run 20 Miler will not occur.
In 2020, the CARA Ready to Run 20 Miler will occur at each CARA training site due to mass gathering restrictions in Illinois, not lifted until Phase 5 of the state's reopening plan. Since we are unable to predict when this will occur, we have adapted our plans for this season as follows:
At each training site, pace groups will complete their 20 miler with appropriate support provided for medical, hydration, and fuel.
Participants will receive a Ready to Run 20 Miler finishers shirt, and goody bag. These items will either be provided at a running store within a 10 mile radius of the training site, or provided at the training site (TBA).
Due to these changes, there will not be an opportunity for runners not part of the CARA Training Program to participate. Further details will be provided to CARA Training Program runners through program newsletters.
