‘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.
For Cairns-based coaches Lorraine and Larry Lawson, and many of Dynamic Running’s club members, running is an important part of who they are. It is their passion, and they want to share this with others.
Dynamic Running coaching techniques and principles suit anyone who wants to learn to run (we call you ‘Beginner Runners’) and those who want to run faster and further (we call you ‘Intermediate Runners’).

KURANDA 2 PORT DOUGLAS
7 AUG 2022
This Point-to-point race starts just off Kennedy Highway in Kuranda and follows Black Mountain Road and the Bump track to Port Douglas. The course runs through native rainforest, open eucalypt forest, pine plantations and crosses picturesque creeks. It is a scenic course incorporated in the Mowbray National Park within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. The pyramid-shaped Black Mountain is a prominent feature of the race. The tropical rainforest is home to the endangered southern cassowary, a flightless bird that can grow to two metres in height.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING...
My whole outlook on ageing and life has changed for the better thanks to Lorraine and her encouragement and guidance. I also enjoy the company of other members who are also encouraging and make running fun.
