The aim of the Townsville Road Runners is to promote running and jogging in Townsville through weekly club runs, races and major events. Our members are made up of all ages and fitness levels, everyone is welcome! We also have a dedicated group of walkers.
The Townsville running season runs from March to October, and regular off season runs are also held. Courses range from flat roads to hills, tracks and cross country. Courses vary in difficulty from short and easy, to a couple which are long and arduous. Regular training runs (long runs, hills, track) are held weekly throughout the year.
Townsville Road Runners are a social group that meet every Saturday morning, (unless there is a scheduled Fun Run on Sunday - check calendar) all year round, regardless of rain, summer heat or cyclones (well, ok, maybe not in an actual cyclone). All Club runs and off-season runs are open to new runners and we encourage you to come down and have a go.
You don’t need to be a member you just need to enjoy running.
There is a nominal fee of $3 per run for members and $6 per run for non-members for most runs (Family members - $7.50 and Family non-members $15). This covers the costs of holding a run as well as providing cuppas, biscuits and cordial after a run. A different fee applies for Fun Runs, The Running Festival and the 3 Day Run.
The off-season runs are normally around 8km and there is a short course option for those just starting out which is around 4km. Club runs commence in the running season on the first Saturday in March. The Club runs are open to everyone - member or non-member alike. They are held at different venues during the year and are of various distances. A glance at the calendar will tell you what runs are coming up. These in season club runs are timed and recorded for your benefit and can be run competitively or as a social run, its up to you. Results are posted on the TRR website and in the Townsville Bulletin space permitting.
All you need to do is pick up a printed calendar from TRR or hop on this website to find out what run is on and to check the home page for any news items.
In addition to Saturday morning runs there are road runners out training most days of the week. Join one of the training sessions and really see your running take off. For training updates, first send an email to email@example.com with the words "Subscribe please" in the subject line and you will be emailed the training plan for the week.
If you do decide to take out a membership you will be eligible for club championship points. At the end of the year your best 15 runs count towards a placing in the Club Championship. Refer to the Club Championship Points webpage for details of the points scoring system.
All members are required to assist with timing, tagging and recording duties on a roster basis at least 2 times per year, more if possible. If you are injured, you are still welcome to assist with volunteering while you recover.
