Keswick AC Juniors aims to provide opportunities for young runners in the area aged 8-16 to learn about training and racing on the fells, road and country. Sessions include not only running but fun games and activities which develop the all-round athleticism required to become a competent runner. The club is at the centre of some of the finest natural scenery to be found anywhere in the UK, and we make use of the local fells, roads and parks in our training sessions. We attract all standards of runner, from county representatives to complete beginners, so do come along and give it a try!

We meet every Wednesday during term time from 5.30-6.30pm at various locations around the town, more details about which are posted on our ‘KAC Juniors‘ facebook page. We also organise several races throughout the year, more details of which can be found below. Please note that to race in a Keswick vest as part of the club, you will need to join the club officially here.
