Chicago’s professional sports teams are no joke to Chicagoans. Just ask any Cub fan! While summer may be baseball season, we also have a few lesser-known teams playing in July that are well-worth checking out.

  1. Are there any free running groups near the conference hotels? E.g. “Fleet Feet” seems to have free runs weekly for anyone to join, but their locations are a bit far from the conference hotels. Is there something comparable that is closer?

    • The Chicago Area Runners Association lists running clubs here: http://www.cararuns.org/Running/Running%20Clubs.aspx
      The following ones from their list are in downtown Chicago (see CARA site for contact info).
      Fleet Feet Sports – Old Town (Chicago)
      Niketown Running Club (Chicago)
      Team Fabulous (Chicago)

      There are several others listed in Chicago that would be a short bus/train ride away.
