Our Merewether group is a Super group   (Caters for A, B and C  standard runners and has two Coaches). Our usual training location isEmpire Park, Bar Beach. Meet near the skate park across the road from the Surf Life Saving Club. Most sessions are run on the grass oval but we will occasionally utilise nearby bike paths. Occasionally we will meet at an alternate nearby venue so we encourage you to check your weekly Runlab e-news and the Runlab website. See Weekly session updates on the homepage underneath the timetable. We train in the rain and only cancel sessions in extreme weather warnings. These notifications will be on your local Runlab Facebook page and be sent to you as a notification. All term runners receive the added benefits (Link to Partner benefits) of becoming a Runlab runner in addition to our weekly training sessions. If you are going to miss your planned weekly session, don’t worry – just make it up at another of the weekly sessions in your area (LINK to timetable)

This is the original Runlab session in the HUNTER area especially in Winter when runners are really looking for that extra motivation and encouragement of a motivated and talented group of runners. This group stands as the ideal stand-alone running session for some runners whilst for others it is the ideal “Double-up” group in the Hunter area for those wanting to train more than once a week. Sessions run for 75 minutes and your trainers are Vlad Shatrov and Mitch Turner/Justin Brock. Hydration and a sports towel are recommended for all sessions with valuables (keys) able to be secured with the coach. A running light is mandatory for TERM 2 and TERM3. We look forward to training with you in this dynamic group where you will be motivated, challenged and educated in your running so over time you will #achieveyourimpossible.

In addition to the weekly training sessions all Runlab runners receive all our members benefits!
