This semester, to reduce risk of COVID, we will be meeting twice a day at 6:30 am and 5:30 pm. Meet outside the Ambler Student Recreation Center at one, or both, of these times to get a run in with the Club! Please wear a mask when attending any Club practices or events.

The KU Running Club will also be hosting a virtual 5k race this year! Click here for more information!

about us

We are a running sports club available exclusively for the Jayhawk Nation. However much or little running experience you’ve had, we have runners of varying ability levels so that you’ll never feel out of place. If you’re looking for a place to relive the glory days, meet new people, or maybe just stay in shape and get involved, the KU Running Club is the place to be.


Guided by our vision to create the very best experience for everyone in our running community, we offer daily workouts, weekly social events, and competition opportunities in Cross Country, Road Racing, and Outdoor Track. Come see what we're all about at one of the daily runs and you might just decide to “run with it!”



"The decision to join Running Club was one I hadn't given much thought to, but it has been one of the best decisions by far! I've made life-long friends and gone to more cool places than I can count, as well as improving as a runner and finding a great way to stay healthy and manage stress. The Running Club has continually inspired me to do more, do better, and have fun while doing it."

"The Running Club gave me a team of like-minded athletes who loved and enjoyed the sport equally as I did. They're more than a team, they're a family."
