The first meeting of the Kennekuk Road Runners was held
at Kennekuk Cove County Park in February 1977 in a small two-room brown building
that was considered the visitor center. Eight people showed up
on a cold winter evening for that first meeting.
KRR sponsors six major events each year plus numerous KRR members-only events, a kid's running program, a women's program, events for walkers, summer fun runs, a summer picnic, bus trips, group trips, frequent group runs and much more.
We love to have fun, but we also give back to the community. KRR donates money every year to local organizations and charities such as the Vermilion County Conservation District, YMCA and the Humane Society.
Kennekuk is not just a local club. In fact, only 30% of our membership lives within 30 miles of Danville. Our members hail from Indianapolis, Charleston, St. Louis, Chicago, Peoria, Champaign, Urbana, Decatur, Bloomington, Normal, Quad-Cities and other states.
We have fast runners, mid-packers, slow runners and walkers, but we treat them all the same. Our members and the dedicated core of volunteer workers are the reason Kennekuk is such an outstanding organization.
We look forward to many more years of KRR and its love affair with running and having fun.
KRR business meetings are held the first Monday of every month at Jocko's Pizza in Danville, IL at 6:30pm -except for June through August the meetings are held at our Fun Run & Walk course at Kickapoo State Recreation Area.
