Training Info

Our group is based in central Melbourne with two training sessions per week, each at nearby locations. These sessions cater for a range of abilities across a variety of distances. Our runners range from recreational to competitive athletes, with a common love of running and wanting to do and be their best…we’re all equals when our running gear is on.

Since joining the Love the Run group I’ve learnt how to run, train and race smarter – and faster as a result. Before joining the group In 2008, my 10k PB was 38:40 and I didn’t think I could run much faster than that. Under Campbell’s expert and diligent coaching, my 10k PB is now 31:21.
