Good luck to all Yankee Runners who will be heading to our nation’s capitol to take part in the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday.  The latest information I have is they raised over $62,000.00 for the Semper Fi fund.  It is not unusual for Yankee Runners to make their mark running in an event.  At this event they made their mark even before the start.

With the training and spring races behind us, the Yankee Runners once again return home to Yankee Woods for the summer. If you plan on running Chicago or any other fall marathon there is still time to join the CARA program and train with the Yankee Runners. The Yankee Runners are a great group of runners who welcome runners of all paces. We are big enough that you should never be alone. Yet still small enough that your group leader will know your name. I will know your name and your face, though I must admit I don’t always put them together. We take CARA’s training program and make it better by adding several of our own wrinkles to it. If you have any questions contact me at

Come on out and give us a try!
