There are Stir events happening every night all over the country, and we wanted to share with you a few of our favorites each week. This week’s recap features a city-wide running tour visiting the historic monuments of Chicago! In this lively event, members were able to mix fitness with friends by getting their jog on while meeting other members, all while seeing all the city has to offer. Talk about two birds, one stone!
What: A citywide, 5K running tour for singles hosted by City Running Tours in Chicago, IL, followed by a picnic in Millenium Park
What Went Down
In this event, members joined together to tour Chicag0 — all while lightly jogging– in order to see some of Chicago’s hottest spots and most historic venues. The casual 5k brought some of the city’s celebrated gems to life, and the host, Marlin Keesler, provided interesting and historical facts about each stop of the running tour. Members were able to see more of the city they already love all while surrounded by similar, fitness-minded singles. After the tour, the runners enjoyed a casual, picnic style brunch catered by Wildberry at Millennium Park. Exercise, sightseeing, food and friends– what could be better?
Best Quote from the Night
“A great way to enjoy an amazing city, learn interesting history and meet great new people. You don’t have to be a runner to enjoy; you just need a great attitude.” – Sarah
