Each summer we conduct a Youth Run program for kids aged 8-12. Runs are on Thursdays at 6:15pm and Saturdays at 8am. The program includes two track meets and a 5k capstone at the end. We look forward to hosting this program again in 2020! Call the store for more details.
If you like to run in the company of others - either for fun or to find someone to push you past the finish line - Schaumburg is home to the Fast Track Racing Team! Come to the store on a Monday for a 6:15 p.m. fun run - all paces welcome.
When our Couch to 5K program isn't in session (after Nov. 26), anyone is free to visit us on Tuesdays at 6:15pm for an informal run/walk meetup. Here we slow down the pace and focus on connecting with one another. This group was formed by graduates of our Couch to 5k program who all started running with Xtra Mile!
When the weather cools off and Harper Community College's track is closed for the season, we host Fast Track's Wednesday night runs here at the store. These runs are different from Mondays because there is a structured workout, usually involving varying intervals and paces on a closed loop near the store.
Xtra Mile's Summer/Fall One-Friday-a-Month local brewery tour. A run takes place before enjoying local beer and great company! The 2019 season of Friday Night Flights has concluded, but check back in 2020 for more details!
New to running, or just coming back from a sabbatical? Start with our Couch to 5k program. We do an 8-week walk-to-run course each spring and fall. Spring concludes in June at the Run for the Roses 5k, and Fall concludes in November at the Turkey Tango Trot 5k, both locally managed in Roselle. The 2019 Fall Couch to 5k (Sep. 3 - Nov. 26) has runs on Tuesdays from the store from 6:30 - 7:15 pm, and Saturday mornings at Volkening Lake from 9-10 am.
