Kenmare Athletic Club reformed in 2009 after an absence of more than 10 years. We currently have 250 registered juvenile and master athletes and are now one of the biggest clubs in the county. We compete in cross country, track and field events. We have held the Kerry Juvenile Cross Country Shield for the last 7 years. In 2015 we were the overall winners at the County Track and Field Championships by just 1 point and followed this in March 2016 by winning the overall title at the County Development Indoor Games, again by a very small margin, 4 points this time. In 2016 we won the Kerry County Championship Juvenile track and field title and were second in 2017. Kenmare AC were the overall winners at the 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 Kerry Community Games Athletics.

For adults we run regular couch to 5km programmes for beginners and welcome adult members of all ages and abilities.

Our annual fundraising 5km and 10km road race takes place on Easter Saturday every year – taking in three of Kenmare’s iconic bridges it must be the most scenic event in the county. Why not join us next year
