Training Information

Our group is based in Melbourne with sessions in Clifton Hill / Studley Park. These sessions cater for a range of abilities across a variety of distances. Our runners range from recreational to competitive athletes, with a common love of running and wanting to do and be their best…we’re all equals when our running gear is on. And we enjoy the company and camaraderie of others.

Love the Run has brought the structure, camaraderie, and fun that was missing from my running previously! In the short time I’ve been a part of the group, Cam’s knowledge and advice has helped me get closer to my goals, and the people I’ve met through the group have meant that I’ve had fun doing it!
