About the Arlington Trotters
The Trotters are a group of people who have at least one thing in common...the love of running. The Arlington Trotter Running Club was established in 1979 to promote running in Arlington Heights and surrounding areas. The club is dedicated to runners of all levels, ages and abilities and its mission is to support each member in achieving individually selected running goals. Current membership is about 120 members with a wide age-range and a diversity of running interests, including running and walking for fitness, participation in events locally and around the world. We have such a wide variety of members - all ages, abilities, occupations and interests - you can almost always find another Trotter or group of Trotters with whom to run. Goals range from racing, 5K's, marathons, ultras, triathlons, and improving fitness. Any goal includes the social aspect of the club. If you've never run with a group, join us and see how much fun - or how challenging - it can be. Don't feel that you will be too slow or too fast. There's usually someone around to run with at just about any pace. The Trotters are into so much more than running. We help the local community in many ways by volunteering. We also have many fun social activities such as Summer Beer Runs, Holiday Parties, Holiday Runs, post training run "recovery" activities.
