WHY BECOME A MEMBER?
The Red and Black Running Team welcomes runners and walkers of all ages, abilities and aspirations, in a fun, safe and supportive environment.
Based in Moonee Ponds, Melbourne, the Red and Black Running Team offer regular training sessions with Athletics Australia accredited coaches.
Training times include:
- Tuesday nights 6-7pm – from Moonee Valley Athletics Centre (summer morning sessions also offered to avoid the heat)
- Saturday morning 8-9am – social run at our local Maribyrnong parkrun
- Sunday mornings 8-10 am – longer easy social runs along beside the Maribyrnong River or monthly at Brimbank Park.
Support is provided to members who wish to run in any of the mass participation fun runs, such as; Run for the Kids, Run Melbourne, Melbourne Marathon Festival and Carman’s Fun Run.
The fun team dynamic extends beyond the track, with a number of social events organised throughout the year.
The Red and Black Running Team is supported by Athletics Essendon and provides a pathway to become an Athletics Essendon member. We also provide support and volunteering opportunities for events run by Athletics Essendon, Athletics Victoria and other notable sporting organisations.
