About Us

Kenilworth Runners Group Photo

Kenilworth Runners is an established, friendly & supportive Road and Cross Country Running Club with over 300 members based in Warwickshire, UK.

The club offers opportunities for runners of all abilities with our members ranging from graduates of Raring to Go beginners courses up to our experienced runners who compete at county level. At a youth level the club offers training and competition with members able to join from 12.

Each year we organise our own Club League Handicap Races where Members compete against their own predicted times, based on past performance. With drinks and free food on offer after the race this league forms a core part of the social fabric of the club.

The club also organises the popular Kenilworth Half Marathon each Autumn and the May Day 10k raising money for the club and local charities.

Both our Mens & Ladies Teams compete in the Birmingham Cross Country League (Ladies Midlands League) and Gloucestershire XC League and we also enter teams in the Hilly 100 race in the Cotswolds. During the summer road racing season the club competes in the Warwickshire Road Race League against other local clubs.

Individuals and groups of runners enter many local and some not so local races from parkruns to Marathons and also trail running events up to Ultra distance. Whatever our members running goals they are equally supported in their training by the England Athletics accredited run coaches and leaders in the club.

Runners of the Month – December 2021

Pamela Grimwade
Oliver Flippance

"Our final Runners of the Month for 2021 were both selected, in part, for their great dedication to their running and to Kenilworth Runners.

Pamela Grimwade ran the 50K Celtic Ultra, ably accompanied by Steve Chalkely, then Pam still found time to organise the Youth section Christmas Lights run and bake them all some goodies. She's an important part of the coaching team for the Youth section, as are all the coaches. Well done and 'thanks', Pam.

So what do you do when your transport arrangements let you down, meaning you're gonna miss the start of the race? Go home & sulk? It would have been easy for Oliver Flippance to do that, but instead, he arrived late at the Welcombe Hills XC having run all the way from Stratford Station, threw his bag and coat into a bush on arrival and chased the field, who he'd given a 5 minute start.

I'm sure Ollie had some fun blitzing through the field (he overtook me on lap 2), and ended up finishing overall 100th place. Great commitment to the cause!

Well done to you two, our final RoMs for 2021 :-)"
