We are a social (semi-competive) running club based in the southern suburbs of Brisbane, Australia (Mt Gravatt/Holland Park/Sunnybank Area) Our members come from a broad cross section of the community, and range in age from their late teens to 70 years old. We have a male to female ratio of about 50/50.
New to running? We will not leave you behind!!
Join us at 6am on Saturdays and one of our expereinced members will walk or jog with you over the 4-6km course until you gain more confidence and build your fitness.
First 3 sessions free!
We will not charge any membership fees while you are trying us out. Once you have decided you would like to join the club we have an annual membership fee of $25 which goes towards social gatherings etc. This membership fee will also make you eligible for club discounts on most major QLD running events.
We now have a new 30min/walk jog run on the 1st Saturday Morning of each month, at 6:30am from the QE11 Stadium (Nathan).
This is ideal for those who want to start running, and don't want to run alone, or for those who have been away from running for awhile, and want to ease back into it. The meeting point is the same as our longer 6am Saturday run, only it starts 30 minutes later at 6:30am. Please email or text us if you are coming along. (There are both toilets and showers available at the start/finish.)
What are our abilities?
On a good day, some of our members will run 10 km (6.25 miles) in 55 min to 60 mins, we also have members who run slower and faster than this. Some run longer distances, and some shorter distances, so no matter what your ability, aims or expectations, you should be able to fit in with us.
Why run with us?
Whether you are a new runner, new member or visitor, no newcomer is ever left alone on a training run (unless they run too fast ), and at all times our members put the old fashion Australian tradition of 'mateship', ahead of personal ambition.
What is our signature run?
Toohey Forest/Mt Gravatt on Saturday mornings, followed by breakfast. We run a series of trails (both bitumen and dirt), and it is as close to nature as you can get in a city of 1 million people.
