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.
Our mission is to help bring the community of running to as many people as possible. We host multiple weekly runs, provide group coaching and continue to organize some of the longest standing races in Kelowna.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, most IRA event Race Directors have cancelled holding of in-person events in 2021. The IRA Road Race Series 2021, with associated awards, will therefore not occur.
However, similarly to what was done for the 2020 XC Series, IRA has announced that they are offering a Virtual Road Run Series with some awards, as summarised on the IRA webpage.
Registration is through Race Roster; entry is $15 for the whole series - 8 runs. Completion of 5 of the 8 events will ensure entry for the general draw prizes, while virtual "Iron Legs" recognition and eligibility for the grand draw prize, is on offer for those who do all 8 runs. To be eligible, participants must complete their runs in compliance with the series requirements: the runs must be done in the predetermined order, over the specified distances, within the required date ranges. Full details are at the Race Roster registration page.
You'll be welcome and all runs and races will become wonderful experiences.Join Us!
