WELCOME
TO RUNLAB
“Achieve your impossible”

Runlab was born out of a desire to enable runners of all abilities the chance to better understand their running, be challenged and over time improve and become a faster runner. For those who are relatively new to running or who are trying to improve their running, the task of understanding what to do and who to ask is overwhelming in itself, so Runlab was created. Runlab will help you “Achieve your impossible”.

say ABOUT US
Matt-testimonial-runlab
Matt Mahoney
Newcastle

Runlab (MRG) is the most fun way to run intervals! The coaches and fellow runners at Runlab (MRG) produce a great atmosphere that encourages everyone to run their best. The speed that I run during these sessions gives me the confidence and ability to run faster in races.

The drills and core work in the sessions are the elements that every runner knows that they should do, but rarely do on their own. The same can be said for Run Recovery, which refreshes my legs for another week of training.

Runlab and Run Recovery are significant contributors to my improving race times.

Runlab hasn’t just made me a better runner; it’s made me a smarter runner.
Mike continues to teach me to understand how my body affects my running, how to train more efficiently and most of all,
With the help of the rest of the squad, how to enjoy my running.

MRG + RunStrong

Runlab is all about achieving your impossible and with the sessions and coaches like Vlad and Mike you really can and you do get better.
Runlab is very professional and you know you’re getting the best because they are the best. Committed coaches who are passionate about running and committed to helping you.
I totally love the whole experience. The group training is not competitive but it helps you push harder and further than you can imagine. Every week is different so it’s always interesting and challenging.I love a good workout but Runstrong takes it to a whole new dimension – it’s tough but it’s made me so much stronger and helped my running hugely.
It’s also really good fun, Mike has a wicked sense of humor, which is a great distraction from some of the inevitable pain you go through!
I feel so fortunate to have found Runlab and everything it’s given to me and I love every week and day I get to go to training.
THANK YOU.

Chris Keyes
MRG + Runstrong

I joined Runlab over a year ago, hoping to take my running to the next level – I haven’t looked back.  My running has improved out of sight and I’m constantly adjusting my goals and expectations as I get stronger and hit another PB. What I really enjoy is the camaraderie of my fellow runners – the spirit of encouragement, motivation and support from both my coach and the group is what really has me hooked!

Through Runstrong sessions I’ve been able to target my weak spots and focus on strengthening techniques that are tailored to my needs as a runner. The sessions are hard work but you come away knowing you’ve laid some important foundations for your running, and the hard work really pays off when your out on a run or in a race and still feeling good as the kms tick over.

I would recommend Runlab to anyone who’s looking to improve their running technique, to challenge themselves and what they think they can achieve, to become stronger, get support from qualified coaches (who are runners themselves) and meet some fantastic like-minded running obsessed people along the way!

John O’Rourke
MRG + RunStrong

I have been running for 4 years and having plateaued, I decided to look for a running group. After doing some research I chose Runlab. The varied training schedules, keeps it interesting and is designed to develop your speed and stamina. Mike and the coaches are very encouraging and give great feedback. After only one term, I managed to knock 5 minutes off my half marathon PB.
I thoroughly recommend Runlab to both new and experienced runners.

Lynette

Runlab was the best decision for my running and health. In 12 months I took 10 minutes off my half marathon time and my parkrun PB from 32 to 25 minutes. Runlab’s holistic approach has also taught me the importance of strength and recovery. I love that the coaches are so supportive, I have been encouraged to set goals I would never have considered before. It’s definitely challenging but running with Runlab is just fun.

Lindy Runlab
 The Runlab coaches are so supporting regardless of whether you are an elite athlete or can barely run, there are so many different options for your training and you meet really friendly supportive and like minded people. Training with Runlab makes you push yourself much harder than you ever  could on your own which leads leads to accomplish achievements you never though you could. There also the opportunities to attend special super session training runs and run camp which are great training events but also a great time with great people.

Hon. Patrick Farmer AM

Australian Adventurer of the Year

“When you get to a plateau in your training and you feel you have no more mountains to climb or races to run, when you feel you are the best you can be and there is no more improvement left, that’s when you need to reinvent yourself and embrace change. That’s when you need to strengthen muscles you didn’t know existed and that have been laying dormant, that’s when you need to stretch your body and your mind and discover movement and moments you have never thought possible before. That’s when you need a Runstrong Gym Program or the motivation of new people around you who share a passion for being better than their old self. That’s what Run Lab is all about. “
