Club Runsthe sweat shop

Consistency is key and if you are looking for a great way to run a steady 10 – 15 km these are the runs for you. The pace is easy and the company great, this is how Sunday runs are meant to be. These runs depart from the top parking lot @08:00.

Weekly Time Trials

Join us every Thursday evening @17:45 and challenge yourself by participating in either our 5km or 8km time trial starting from the bottom oval. The first Thursday of every month is our social night where you can join us for a bite to eat and a drink or two followed by a raffle where we have prizes sponsored by the Sweat Shop. Come down to the club and make sure you use the #wanderersathleticsclub to post your pics!

Next First Thursday is on the 4th of July! Please wear high visibility clothing and headlamps!

Track Tuesdays

Track sessions start at 17:45 every Tuesday on the top oval, all levels of runners are welcome. Sessions followed are on the website and on the WAC app.
