Ken Bingley (1932 - 2022)

(posted 15th January)

All of us at Ackworth Road Runners were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of club legend Ken Bingley in January. Our thoughts go to his family; he will be greatly missed across the club, by the local parkrun community and the wider running community.

Ken was a real inspiration to many of our members over the last 33 years, from people he ran with and others who mainly knew him from his volunteering. Ken was with the club for 33 years, both as a runner and volunteer and he was always a friendly supportive figure offering help and advice to everyone, often with great stories from his life. He regularly volunteered at Pontefract parkrun at Ken's Corner, as well as at Frickley Country Parkrun and countless Ackworth club races over recent years. He was always so supportive to everyone and loved by all.


Ken was an amazing runner, and still holds 18 different club records, many of which will probably never be beaten, including a 4 hour 28 minute marathon as a Vet75 and a sub 42 minute 10k as a Vet65, among many others. It was great to see him out supporting us recently at the Great Sprout Scuttle and our GP parkruns at Frickley and Fountains Abbey at the end of last year.

It's been an honour to have Ken as a member and a friend of the club for so many years.
