Alice Springs Running and Walking Club
See us on Facebook! The Alice Springs Running and Walking Club has been active since 1979 and became an Incorporated Association as the Alice Springs Running Club Inc. in 1986.
The club has local sponsors who provide excellent support, and ensure that we are able to offer an extensive event program. We greatly appreciate our sponsor contributions.
The club promotes and encourages running and walking as a competitive sport as well as recreational jogging and walking for the improvement of general fitness for individuals of all ages and abilities. Training programs of varying levels, for runners and walkers is offered by an approved club coach on almost every day.
Our event calendar caters for varied levels of fitness and ability, from the short distance fun runs and walks, to the classic race events such as the 10 km Series, the Half Marathon and the Marathon. The Alice Springs Marathon has been held every year since the Club’s inception. The Marathon is recognised nationally and internationally as an extremely friendly and well organised event, attracting local, interstate and international competitors.
A major contributor to the success of our club is our coordination of the Road & Cross Country events for the Alice Springs Masters Games. The Masters Games are held every second year, the previous event being held in 2012.
