'Running is one of the greatest metaphors for life, because you get out of it what you put into it.'
Dynamic Running Ltd. aims to inspire runners into a life-long passion for running. The company limited by guarantee was created in April 2014 as a not for profit organisation to promote running, and in particular group training for runners in the Cairns area. We are based in Edge Hill, and we also offer clinics at selected venues around the region. We link runners with runners. We have a few signature races during the year, but most of the time we just run.
What's on your ‘bucket’ list? Once you get started with Dynamic Running, we predict that your list will become longer, as you try to fit in as many running events into your schedule as you can!
Whether your goal is to get fit, lose weight or run your first 5km, we can help you. Or you might be bit more ambitious, aiming for your first half marathon, marathon or beyond. Our members travel far and wide to compete in running events, while others are trying out their first 5km through to Ultra Marathons here in Cairns.
We encourage club members to dream of what they want to achieve, and set their goals based on that and not limit themselves. We've learnt that the human body is capable of much more than we can ever imagine or give it credit for.

Health and medical conditions
"Don't fear moving slowly forward ... fear standing still." -Kathleen Harris
The team at Dynamic Running are not doctors, physiotherapists or personal trainers, so we don't give specific advice about medical conditions (including injuries), specialist stretching poses or what to eat. If you want advice on those topics, seek out the relevant experts. We are qualified running coaches with years of experience. We RUN.
If you are not sure if you are ready to participate in our sessions, consult your doctor. This may apply to those of you who have an existing medical condition or a recurring injury, or if you are overweight, over 40 years of age, or you have not done any exercise for years.
