Running & Athletics

QMRAC aim to deliver a friendly group of likeminded people with whom to train and socialise – Running doesn’t have to be a solitary pursuit! Join us on group runs for all abilities or at Interval training at the track on Thursdays. Our main focus is distance running although this may be expanded upon in the future. We will compete in the LCL cross country league regularly and will also attend the LUCA indoors series for track events. We also hope to organise a bunch of socials throughout the year.

Regular training:

  • Track sessions with a mixture of interval, long, middle, and short distance running at Mile End Track every Thursday at 7:30pm
  • Morning runs every Tuesday at 7:30am – choose to join for 5K or 10K

  • A personalised gym programme tailored to your own fitness goals;
  • A full demonstration of exercise and techniques, and guidance on resistance machines;
  • Information and advice on nutrition;
  • A 60 minute review session every 6-8 weeks to re-evaluate and re-customise a new programme to avoid plateaus.
