Welcome to the Kenosha Running Club!

We are a diverse community of local runners of all ability levels—from casual runners and avid racers to ultra-marathoners. Our activities include group runs along the Kenosha harbor, workouts on the track, monthly meetings/potlucks, as well as other non-running social events.

The club also organizes two local races a year—the Turkey Day Run and the Harvest Moon Run—and funds a college scholarship for local high school runners.

We hope you’ll come join us for a Saturday run, a monthly meeting, or one of our other social events.



About the Kenosha Running Club

Founded by Kenosha’s Jim Ryan in 1978, the Kenosha Running Club has become a gathering place for local runners of all ability levels—from casual runners to avid racers and ultra-marathoners. Our goal is to promote and expand running, health, and fitness in the Kenosha area while contributing to the community through our support of charitable causes and volunteer opportunities for our members.

Follow us on Facebook,  Twitter and Instagram to stay current on club events and group runs.


Group Runs

We offer weekly group runs and over 100 members of all ability levels to help you reach your running goals. You’ll find support, whether you’re looking for company for a few miles or training for a marathon. We’re a big enough and diverse enough group that you’ll almost certainly have at least one other person your pace to run with. In fact, our paces range from 5 min–14 min per mile, with the largest amount of members right in the 10 min pace range.

Our weekly group run is held on Saturday mornings at the Kenosha harbor. We meet at 7:30 am at the flagpoles located at the corner of 52nd St. and 6th Ave in Kenosha. We meet year-round, regardless of weather. The general route is 6 miles (3 out and 3 back). But anyone can run more or fewer miles as desired. Those training for longer runs usually start before 7:30 am and often loop back at 7:30 to join up with the main group. There are groups running all distances and paces. So whether you’re going long or just looking for a short run, you’re likely to find company. We typically plan to finish by 8:30 and gather at Common Grounds (5159 6th Ave) afterwards to sip coffee and chat.

You may also join us on Tuesday nights for hill repeats at Petrified Springs Park or track workouts on the UW-Parkside track. The Tuesday run times and locations can vary depending on the season, so visit our Facebook page to find a group and meeting time.
