Whitsunday Running Club

Airlie Beach offers a beautiful environment in which to train, for both scenery and climate. With the Conway National Park and the 74 Whitsunday Islands on our doorstep, plus the scenic Bicentennial Walkway in Airlie Beach, we are spoilt for choices. Airlie Beach annual temperatures range from a minimum of 15 deg to 33 deg.

The Club is affiliated with Athletics North Qld, Queensland Athletics (QRun) and Athletics Australia who lend support and training to its recreational running clubs. Within the club are members who have coaching certificates and personal trainers, who will work with club members to assist them to achieve their goals. Many of our members have come from recreational runners pre June 2012 to competing in major races, up to 100km, both locally and overseas.

The Club organises two significant events each year: The Airlie Beach Marathon Festival in July, the Airlie and the Whitsunday Trail Festival in September.
