Kelowna Running Club

Member club of BC Athletics

The Kelowna Running Club will provide opportunities for the community to participate, recreate and be educated in the sport of running at whatever level they choose.




The popular annual Kelowna Running Club Kettle Valley Railway run and walk will be held on Saturday, August 6, 2016. While most runners and walkers will  start at 7:30, a group of runners will do an early start at 7:00 in order to run 24 kilometers. The starting point is at the parking lot at the beginning of the railway, off McCulloch Road (the turnoff is past KLO Creek). Run or walk the famous trestles and tunnels and enjoy the amazing views, while visiting with great people - runners. It's an out and back, so you pick your distance. Run fast, run slow.

Coffee and goodies will be available at the parking lot at about 9:00, as we enjoy the usual runners' camaraderie. It is pot luck so if you can bring a little something that would be great, but if not we would still like to see you there. You do not have to be a club member to join us. All are welcome.

Please join us for this flat run.


Commando Bay Participants

Sixty-four hearty runners and walkers participated in the 40th annual Commando Bay (formerly run to Naramata) on Saturday, June 25, 2015. Shown above is the second group of runners, who departed at 5:35. They were preceded by two other female runners, who left 5 minutes earlier and returned at 10:45. Of course the guys slept in, none showing until some time later.

This year there were no reported bear or snake encounters and little in the way of scrapes and bruises. Other than a short rain shower around 6:00 the weather was perfect.

The participants gathered after the run at Bertram Park for coffee and nibbles. Commemorative jackets were handed out to the first 50 participants who were club members.

Everyone appeared to enjoy the morning and, no doubt, are looking forward to next year’s rendition.
