We are people of all different shapes and sizes. Most of us were not runners before we joined this team. Today we are a mighty movement in McHenry county changing the lives of children in Africa and around the world - and our lives are being changed in the process.
In 2020 the Algonquin Runners changed the lives of over 3700 children and their familes through clean water. Clean water provides a fresh start line for health, education, and economic development in the undeveloped world and it's all done in the name of Jesus. We'd love to have you join us. WE WANT TO RUN WITH YOU! We know you can do this!
Team World Vision provides everything you need to cross the finish line: training plans, weekly email encouragement, fundraising guides and incentives, and an incredible group run and race weekend experience. Most importantly, we have each other. The Algonquin Runners has one of the best well supported group runs in the country.
In Africa, there is a saying: "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." Join us and let's go farther together!
In addition to the Run training program, the Algonquin Runners supports a run-walk training program. We will help you choose the right training program for you and there isn't a better team to do it with!
We also have a half marathon option so don't hesitate to reach out to learn more!
World Vision provides more clean water than any nongovernment organization in the world. They work with communities around the world to help solve the puzzle of poverty -- providing things like clean water, nutritious food, education, medical care, economic opportunity, and spiritual development.
