"Running has changed my life, especially since I've joined GER. Have made some great friends and so appreciate them keeping me active. Totally never thought I would be doing this at my age! LOVE GER!!"
"Running with GER over the last four years has been a great way for me to stay fit and be around some really terrific people who love running - some a bit too much. I feel lucky to have met such a great group who a share a common passion."
"I really do not think I would have been able to run my first marathon Running is the tonic for my heart and lungs. Running with friends is the tonic for my soul. Glen Ellyn Runners is the best club for both."

"Probably the best thing about Glen Ellyn Runners is the camaraderie. Whether you are a seasoned professional or a novice, there is genuine support."
"Since joining Glen Ellyn Runners I have improved at all distances tremendously. After running several marathons training alone, the group really helped push me, encourage me and support me. I had wanted to qualify for the Boston Marathon for years. Last year I finally did and I really feel it is because I run with the Glen Ellyn Runners."
