The Hillstriders Running Club is a community running club with members of all abilities.  Our members run for the fun of it and also compete in 5 Km races thru ultra marathon events. The Hillstriders also provide race support to many local community efforts via race management, volunteers, equipment and results

5Km run/walk held on Thanksgiving day at Lippold park in Crystal Lake.  Monetary and non-perishable food donations are collected and donated to the Crystal Lake Food Pantry

The Race circuit was created as a way for all of us to run some local races together. It is a great way to cheer each other on and socialize with other members
