With a motto that ‘fitness is for everyone’, the Rocky Road Runners welcome runners of all ages and experience levels to join them on their weekly running endeavours.
On Mondays, the club holds their weekly ‘Rookies Run’, which is a 5km CBD loop that is suitable for all ages and abilities (kids included). The distance can also be shortened if needed, depending on your level of running experience.
Tuesday Track Sessions are held at the CQUniversity Sports Oval and focus more on interval training, with experienced runners on hand to offer advice and help cater the session to all fitness levels. Thursday’s Social Club Runs offer a varied course each week with the distance ranging between 5km and 8km.
For those looking to practice longer distances, the Saturday Long Run is ideal, being a self-select distance that is broken down into segments up to 6kms between drink stops. This course also varies each week, beginning at the Glenmore Shopping Village in Farm St.
To get involved, you will need to take out a yearly membership with the club, which costs $50 per adult or $40 for those under 17. Family membership discounts are also available.
