It’s advisable to contact the group leader via email to ensure the run details haven’t changed. You are also welcome to give me a call (0403 176672) if you require an urgent reply and if so I will endeavor to make contact with the group leader.
Brisbane Running Buddies
On Wednesdays we leave The Ship Inn at 5am and pace is around 5min per km. Distances vary, most do somewhere between 12k and 18k. After the run those who don’t have to rush off have a quick coffee & chat on the Goodwill Bridge.
On Saturdays there are usually two or three starts (also from The Ship Inn) – 5am, 5.30am, 6am. Distances can be anywhere from 12k up to 35k, depending on what people are training for. Pace is around 5:15 to 5:30s. Who’s doing what and when is all discussed via our email group during the week. After the run we head to a cafe at South Bank for a relaxing brekky.
All are welcome! For further details email Tess at email@example.com.
Usually start at the Ship Inn – although we are trying to freshen it up a bit and will alter it around occasionally. We are currently starting at 5:30am with a 30 minute loop. Then back to the Ship Inn at 6:00am to pick up those people wanting to do less than 2 hours.
We then run a 90 minute loop and are generally back at the start at about 7:30am – 8:00am. Pace average 4:40. Slower at start (5s) and we try and put in a couple of ks at race pace towards the end.
We have initiated a short stretching stop 10mins into run. We select courses with water available or make everybody aware they will need to carry. Fruit is always available after the run – supplied on a loose roster basis. Everybody has fun and nobody is dropped if they need to stop – although we do maintain pace during the run. Average numbers currently 4 – 8 weekly.
Always happy to see people join us.
Matty’s Wednesday Long Run
Start: 5:30am sharp at the Ship Inn
Option 1 – 18.7k anti-clockwise Green Bridge loop with a cool down afterwards to take us to 90 minutes.
Option 2 – 12.9k half loop, running with the Group until the top of Highgate Hill, then direct to the Ship Inn. Ideal for recovery/taper weeks!
Pace Range: Always starts at about 5:00 pace with the group running together to the Regatta. Some of us then pick up the pace gradually before finishing at goal marathon pace (4.00-4:30pace for most of us). Others who are in a recovery week or need an easier run will run at a comfortable pace throughout.
Some regulars include Matt Phillips, Glenda Banaghan, Andy Clowes, Wayne Ralph, Matt Langmack, Mike Robinson and Matt Reid. Newbies are always welcome.
