WHAT IS RUN CLUB?

Drive Fitness run club sessions are self paced, social & occasionally a little competitive with the purpose of bringing people of all fitness levels and running experience together to enjoy running in a group.

If you'd like to train with us & join our team give me (Dave) a call on 0402 358 127 or email dave@drivefitness.com.au.

WHERE & WHEN DOES RUN CLUB MEET?

Drive Fitness Run Club meets at Tarragindi & Graceville personal training studios on Saturday morning's 6:30am. Tarragindi Run Club will be following a strict distance progression over 15 weeks leading up to the Gold Coast half marathon. In addition to the half marathon progression Tarragindi & Graceville will both still have our standard 5-10km runs taking place (this is what we do all year round).

WHO CAN JOIN RUN CLUB & HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Drive Fitness Run Club is suitable for all levels of fitness & running experience & it's FREE for everyone that trains at Drive Fitness.

WHAT DO YOU DO AT RUN CLUB & HOW DOES IT WORK?

Drive Fitness Run Club is self paced & scale-able meaning that based on your fitness, running experience and upcoming events we will make recommendations on the distance and intensity that's best for you.Ultimately you will determine how hard you work and how far you run. 

WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF RUN CLUB SESSIONS?

Be held accountable to doing a run, connect with a local group of people who enjoy running, find someone who runs at a similar pace to push you along & prepare for events as a team.
