There are numerous social opportunities throughout the year so come along and join the fun. Kembla Joggers needn’t be all about training and racing! Here are some of the social activities you might like to get involved with.
Get set to enjoy a great night out amongst friends. This is the BIG night where all of the season's award winners are announced including winners of all of the Pointscores, Most Meritorious (Golden Boots) Award, Athletes's Athlete Award, Most Improved, Encouragement and Participation Awards, Clubperson of the Year and the prestigious KJ Medal. For a full list of awards and previous award winners click here Presentation Night is held within a few weeks after the conclusion of the winter season. Keep an eye out on website News for more details closer to the event.
Annual Trivia Night
Held at Wests Illawarra this event is usually held around late June or early July - see website News during the year for more details. A fun (and sometimes, in a fun way, competitive) night served with pizza and finger food. It's always a great night out! Tables are limited so payment on booking is essential before the night. You can form your own table of 8 max or book as a single or couple and we will slot you into a team. The KJs monster raffle is also drawn throughout the evening and proceeds of the event supports both the Club's Athlete Development Fund and the Cross-Country Park Development Fund.
Kembla Joggers events are great social gatherings in themselves. Make time to stay after the race and enjoy a free cuppa, biscuit and cake, and great company with your running friends.
The Brewery Bash
The Brewery Bash is held in December as part of the Summer Series and is usually the last race before Christmas. It starts and finishes at the Five Islands Brewery, situated at the bottom of Crown Street behind the Wollongong Entertainment Centre. The event is followed by free drinks and nibbles at the Brewery, which is open to families. What better way to enjoy a lovely summer evening and catch up with everyone before Christmas!
Every now and then we will organise a weekend away in a beautiful setting like the Blue Mountains National Park. Of course there will be the odd bush trail run or two to enjoy, but the main purpose is to unwind after the long running season and enjoy the relaxed company of friends and family. Watch the website for more details.
Friday Night Feasts are a great family friendly KJ social event. We try to choose a variety of restaurants to keep your taste buds happy. Friday Feasts are usually held on the 3rd Friday of each month during the winter season. Keep an eye on the KJ website for announcements on venues and times. RSVP is always essential to reserve your place.
