Club

Kesgrave Kruisers are a family friendly Running Club based in Kesgrave, Suffolk, UK. We are registered with the Association of Running Clubs.

We meet for two training nights each week:

Tuesday

Kesgrave War Memorial Community Centre

Tuesday intervals at KWMCC involve laps around the field in a variety of formats that are sure to keep you interested week after week.

These sessions cost £1 per adult, to be deposited at the start of the session.

Thursday

Grange Farm Cycle Path

Thursday sessions are typically on part or all of the Grange Farm cycle path and often involve distance efforts, such as 1 km or 1 mile repeats.

These sessions are free.

Both nights are suitable for any age or ability. The Tuesday circuits in particular are very welcoming to anyone taking their initial steps into running, as everyone is always in sight and earshot of the coach leading the session.

Children are welcome to attend both sessions. On Tuesdays any under 16s should be joined at the session by a parent or guardian and the parent or guardian should decide the appropriate efforts for the child. Under 8s must run with a parent or guardian. On Thursdays any child under 16 should run with a parent or guardian, as the route may pass out of view of those leading the session.

The club regularly offers beginner and improver training programmes, building up to distances of 5 km, 10 km and Half Marathon. There are regular Social runs through the week, often departing from Kesgrave Millennium Hall or near Tesco. Keep your eyes on our Facebook group for information and timings of all upcoming events.

The Facebook group is a hub for the club, and runners are welcome to share and request advice, recommendations, event details, running stories and more. The group is moderated, and posts that are spamming, advertising or promoting private companies may be deleted – unless pre-approved by the moderators. We are a friendly group, so posts that are deemed to be insulting other members will be deleted and may result in the offending account being removed.

Happy running, and we hope to see you soon!
