The Crosbie Crew meets for training per the below schedule. We cater for all abilities across a wide variety of events and distances. Our members range from beginners and casual runners to athletes competing in national and international events. So, whatever your ability or ambition, there is always something for you as long as you can comfortably run 5kms at or below a 6min/km pace.

Where do I store my gear?

Most members need somewhere to put their gear at training sessions, and there is almost always a member’s car being used for safe and secure storage. If you are getting there on foot, bike or public transport and need some storage space, you only have to ask. Make sure you arrive 10 minutes before the session starts so you have plenty of time to take advantage of “bag drop” before training begins.

This is our largest group session of the week, which sometimes sees over 100 people in attendance. It’s a hard but fun session with lots of people of all abilities working to improve their running. Quality sessions are aimed at improving running technique, speed and endurance. Sessions include things like intervals, fartleks and hills. We split into three different groups – endurance, skills and speed. Each group caters for runners of all abilities.
