The AK Kilen running club was established in Struer, Denmark in 1982. Back then, it was a general athletics club. Today the focus is mostly on running and having a good time. The club has 120 members.
We meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 17:30, outside the entrance to Struer Energi Park (a sports complex that includes the local swimming pool). After warming up, we split into groups, with a variety of paces and routes. There’s something for everyone!
We also meet on Saturdays at 13:00. After the Saturday run, you can socialize with other club members in the Tennis Club (next to Struer Energi Park), enjoy a drink, and get a bite to eat. Changing rooms and showers are available.
A calendar with the routes that we plan to run is on the club website.
Our flagship event is the annual Kilen Rundt race in May. This consists of a 5 km and a 10 km race. It draws several hundred participants of all ages from the local area.
The club also helps to organise Vinterløb, a race event over three consecutive Saturdays in January.
You can run with the club before becoming a member. Members of AK Kilen enjoy lots of benefits every year, including:
- Paid entry to three pre-selected races
- New Year’s gathering
- Club birthday in April
- Run from the North Sea to Struer (Fra Hav til Fjord) in September
- Pre-Christmas get-together
- A wonderful social environment
