Achieving You Run Club

Why does everyone love run club?
BECAUSE IT MAKES US FEEL GREAT AND IT’S A LOT OF FUN!

Run Club is open to everyone of all fitness levels. It’s a great way to get fit, get outdoors and get into running.

We train twice a week – one session is based around aerobic fitness which means an easy run for a longer time to increase endurance and the other session is based around anaerobic fitness which is short, sharp runs to improve speed and increased calorie burn.

We enter various events throughout the year, which gives us direction for training and provides a lot of fun socially because we always end up having breakfast afterwards!! (the best part!)

Check out the events section of our website to see what we have planned for the year.

We always have new people starting which means you will always fit in! If you are keen to give running a try or want to improve your technique, come and give us a try – first week free!

Some Lives We have Changed…

I have had asthma all my life, therefore never was able to run distances. As I grew older it improved and after meeting my husband who loved running, I decided I wanted to give it a go too. I joined Janet’s run club in 2011, to train for the Bridge to Brisbane, I couldn’t run further than 2-3km at this time. With Janet’s incredible support, encouragement and training I managed to run the 10km race that first year. Since then I have conquered Mt Cootha, and run 2 half marathons, and I now using running as a way of distressing and for social enjoyment with the rest of the club. I am fitter than I have ever been – Cheers Janet!

When Janet first suggested I come along to a run club session on a Wednesday night the first thing I said to her was “I can’t run and I don’t really enjoy it” not to mention everything else that ran through my mind at the time. Well things have really changed in the last 4 months. While I am not breaking any records I have actually managed to run in my first race ever at the age of 47. Learning technique, what to do before and after running has made a huge difference to how I feel about the whole “running thing”. The support I have received from not only Janet, but all the other runners on a Wednesday night has made me already sign up for my next race. I started only 2 months ago!
