Start your Journey – Become a Rebel Runner

We’ve recently been working with Dan and Jake, who are film makers and were looking to create a sample narrative advert about a running club for their portfolio. We are really proud of the end result, which captures the journey many of us are, or have been, on and shows what being a Rebel is all about:

Rebels in the media:

In January 2024 KMTV visited Rebel Runners at one of our weekly track sessions and asked some of our members about the club. You can find the result by clicking here!

Why join Rebel Runners?

As our name suggests, we are a running club based in the Medway area of Kent in the South East of England. Formed in 2014, we are now one of the largest and best known clubs in the area, renowned for our friendly and supportive nature. As a club, we’d love to help with your running journey, give you the support you might need and maybe help you make new friends.

Here’e the experience of one of our members:

“I moved to Medway and needed something to keep my running journey going and I was new to the area so it was a good opportunity to meet people. Not only did I meet some of my closest friends now but I also met the man who is now my husband on a run!”
