Once you’ve decided on an event our coaches are ready to help reach your goals. Each week coached sessions are built around building strength and speed with tempo and interval runs.

Our members participate in lots of different distances from parkrun to the long distance marathon, ultra marathon and trail runs. We’ll train together for specific races – erect the club tent at the start-line and Members not running come along and support!

Here’s a few of the popular events we train towards –

    • Dusk 2 Dawn (February);
    • Warwick Pentathrun (May);
    • Noosa Running Festival (May);
    • Brisbane Running Festival (June);
    • Gold Coast Marathon (July); and
    • Sunshine Coast Marathon & Community Run Festival (August)

Andy Almond

“Thursdays night session at Redcliffe was my first run with the Club back in 2019 – It was a new session lead by Paul Theron and it’s been my most frequented Club run since. I have watched the session develop from a small initial group to what it is today.

I have deputised for Coaches in the past and facilitated their sets for the group so it’s a real pleasure and honour to step into the Coaching shoes for Thursday nights.

I’m always open to questions and feedback so if there is something you’d like to see in session you only have to ask!! See you at the Jetty 6pm Thursday nights.

Andy is our Thursday Redcliffe Coach – sessions are run on a closed loop so no matter what your pace or motivation, there will always be members to run with. With a focus on endurance, there will be plenty of tempo, hill & pyramid runs – something for everyone to enjoy.
