Chicago, IL

#NP_CHI joined the November Project family in May of 2014. Their pledging period was conducted during one of the coldest winters in the recent memory, but that didn’t stop them from growing their numbers week after week. November Project Chicago is the epitome of persistence, commitment, and determination and you should check out what the hype is all about.

Our workouts are held on Wednesday at 6:18am on Zoom and and Friday at 6:00am in varying locations.

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or subscribe to our Google calendar.

  1. Hello,

    Have you all thought about doing “pop-up” fitness in some of Chicago’s underserved communities? I don’t see many outdoor fitness events in “Abbott Park, Washington Park, or Garfield Park”.

    1. Hi Emanuel
      Im so sorry about the late reply. But YES! We think about that alot and would love to reach out into those neighborhoods. We want to work with community members in those community beforehand so we can find the best place to host a workout and reach the most people.
      If you would like to work with us on this we would love to talk to you! Email if you are interested !
      Best,

  2. Are there November Projects in the suburbs? I’m up that early but on my way to work – west of Schaumburg

    1. Hi Jack
      No workouts in the suburbs….Yet. But we have plenty of people who drive into the city . Look for the NPCHI social page on facebook and you can ask if anyone is coming in from out here you are.
      Hope to see you at a workout!

    I am a newer runner and looking for a running community to join and have found you through listening to Kelly Roberts Podcast – Run Selfie Repeat and her talking about the NYC November project. Would like some more information and any run meeting times and such for this year
