Alice Springs Walking And Running Club
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.
The 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, the Marathon, and for the first time ever in the Northern Territory – The Alice Springs Ultra. 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 both interstate and international competitors in addition to local entrants. A major contributor to the success of our club is our coordination of the Road & Cross Country events for the Alice Springs Masters Games.
