Our Approach

About us

We started out as a group of new runners looking for a pathway to continue and improve upon our running. We meet every Monday and Wednesday at 7.00pm at the Cricket Pavilion in Ward Park. We do a variety of training sessions on rotation to complement and improve our running form and performance. We are an all inclusive group and welcome members with a range of different abilities, from newly graduated Couch to 5k runners right up to marathon runners! Each session is completed at an individual's own pace - it's your session and we want you to get the best from it.
