RUNLAB COSTS & BENEFITS

Member benefits

Every Runner entering the Term will receive exclusive member benefits for that term Members benefits

Term structure and Flexibility

Our groups run on a Term to term basis of 10 weeks. Participants enrol prior to a term commencing and attend the class every week over the term – there is also an option to attend the class casually, although many runners do a either double sessions (Like double Myrungroup) in a week or a combination of different groups (like Mytrailgroup and Runstrong). We understand that everyone has a busy schedule, so if you cannot make your usual chosen session in a particular week – simply jump into another group.. For planning however we ask you enter into your preferred group for the first session of the term, but from there you swap as suits.

Standard Groups

Standard groups are groups that take all levels of runners being A, B and C level runners; almost all groups are Standard groups

Super Groups

Super groups are groups that take only A and B level runners. 2+ coaches, therefore allowing a very targeted level of training, usually run these.

Elite Groups
We currently run one weekly Elite group in the Hunter on a Tuesday PM

STANDARDS

Standards for our run groups are essential to ensure that all levels of Runlab runners are training at a pace that will see them improve and also so that runners don’t become injured. Our Runstrong classes whilst not requiring a running standard as such, are intense and if you have not been undertaking regular strength & Conditioning you may find it very challenging at the start. We can modify exercises based on ability but encourage you to speak with us if you are unsure of your ability.

A group Runner (Male Sub 12, Female Sub 12:30) 4:00, 4:10 per km

B group Runner (Male Sub 14, Female Sub 14:30) 4:40, 4:50 per km

C group Runner (Male and Female Sub 16:30) 5:30 per km

ELITE (Male Sub 10, Female Sub 10:30) Note the times above are for a hard 3k effort and runners are not required to run that fast all the time but show potential too.
