Our Story

River City Runners (RCR) is a Brisbane running club that grew out of a small band of mates who enjoyed running around Toohey Forest and the Mt Gravatt area. Over the years, our membership grew, as did our commitment to promote a healthy lifestyle through the simple joy of running with friends.

Training as a group and entering races became a passion that has seen the club participate in many different events - from local fun runs to big city marathons and rugged ultra-marathons. Members have travelled to South Africa, Europe, America, New Zealand and Japan for running holidays. 

Every week from Wednesday to Saturday, we run scheduled sessions on Brisbane's southside. Most Sundays, members organise trail runs in bushland or road runs through suburban parks or the city. Our sessions are fun and friendly. We always ensure there are different pace and distance options. Many regular routes are pram friendly.

River City Runners is more a community than a club. Partners of runners have always enjoyed joining us for a walk. So, on Wednesday afternoons, all members are welcome to enjoy a bushwalk in Toohey Forest. 

Our membership is diverse in age, ability and outlook, but we all have one thing in common - we love keeping fit with friends! Whatever your personal fitness goals, you will find support.
