About the Northside Running Group

The club provides a friendly environment for anyone who wants to run at any level from basic fitness training through to competing in ultra marathons. There are a variety of running sessions each week and for newcomers we offer beginner courses throughout the year.

Our membership spans all ages from 15 to 88 and with an even mix of males and females, it provides a fun and social environment to meet new friends. Social functions are held throughout the year and include social gatherings after running events, trivia nights, bushwalks, dinners and weekends away such as training weekends in the Blue Mountains or to attend race events such as the Gold Coast marathon and half marathon.

Our Objectives

The main objective of the Northside Running Group is to help and encourage runners to achieve their running goals. The club is run by runners for runners. We offer group sessions led by run leaders and qualified coaches assisted by pacing guides. Runs are open to club members only however, you may come along to two sessions as a non member to try us out before joining. If you wish to continue to run with Northside Running Group, you will need to become a member.

NRG is a community based running group and has a NSW registered COVID-19 Safety Plan. Aware of the latest COVID situation, and the risks associated with gatherings, your club’s committee recognises how important running is to your mental and physical health, so we are hosting our regular sessions in line with NSW current policy, with the following caveats and restrictions until further notice:

* Pre-registration via this website is mandatory. No exceptions. This is for tracing in the very unfortunate and unlikely situation where somebody tests positive who's been to a recent session.
* If there is a hotspot in the Sydney area, the club may temporarily suspend sessions with very little notice.
