Providing a fun, friendly environment for runners to achieve personal bests and celebrate each other’s successes.
The Newcastle Flyers Runners Club hosts interval sessions every Tuesday and Thursday, with recovery runs often organised on the other weekdays, and a FLyeRS Long Run Sunday from Merewether Baths.
Over 100 runners receive regular coaching emails, and session numbers vary depending on people's training program. A friendly group trains together most Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, with a range of abilities. Our members include road runners, trail runners, and track runners who compete over distances from 800m through to ultras. So there's something for everyone, with many seeing significant improvements in their PBs within months.
