We very regretfully convey the announcement that due to recent peer and government guidance on the rapidly-growing COVID-19 crisis, the NRG committee in a majority decision will be ceasing all official club-organised activities including our weekly run schedule, after this Saturday 21st March. This situation will be reviewed regularly.
We appreciate that running and social activity in this club are an important part of our lives, and this decision was not made lightly.
We encourage members to keep running alone or in small groups as permitted and communicate freely on our Facebook group, with intentions, experiences and photos. Our maps will remain available.
As a club we will be back up and running as soon as the situation allows.
About the Northside Running Group
The club provides a friendly environment for anyone who wants to run at any level from basic fitness training through to competing in ultra marathons. There are a variety of running sessions each week and for newcomers we offer beginner courses throughout the year.
Our membership spans all ages from 15 to 80 and with an even mix of males and females, it provides a fun and social environment to meet new friends. Social functions are held throughout the year and include social gatherings after running events, trivia nights, bushwalks, dinners and weekends away such as training weekends in the Blue Mountains or to attend race events such as the Gold Coast marathon and half marathon.
The main objective of the Northside Running Group is to help and encourage runners to achieve their running goals. The club is run by runners for runners. We offer group sessions led by run leaders and qualified coaches assisted by pacing guides. Runs are open to club members only however, you may come along to two sessions as a non member to try us out before joining. If you wish to continue to run with Northside Running Group, you will need to become a member.
We run on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. We also have morning runs on Wednesday and Saturday.
