The Runners Club

YMCA Canberra Runners Club is the capital's largest running club and offers events and training groups for runners of all ages and abilities.

Looking for some variety to parkrun? The club conducts over 90 races during the year ranging from 1.6 km to a half marathon. See our event calendar to find out what is coming up.

Fitting running into a busy schedule? How about our Spring and Summer series races held in central locations at 6.15 pm on Tuesdays.

Looking for a training group to keep you motivated? Our TTS group meets on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings throughout the year.

Something for Mum and the kids? Come out to the monthly Jogalong at Weston Park. We have a 6 km female-only handicap as well as a kids' run and free childcare.

Planning the family summer holiday? Join us at the Thredbo Fun and Fitness week in January. Fun runs for all ages plus golf, tennis, swimming and even a trivia quiz. And there are a couple of mountain runs for the serious athletes in the family.

Annual membership gets you free or discounted entry to all Club events, plus access to our TTS training group.

Club members are occasionally requested to volunteer to assist with conducting events and training.  There is even a volunteer only membership option for those who want to be involved with the club as a volunteer and do not wish to compete.
