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’).

  • We teach you how to run, and then we teach you how to run better
  • We provide a friendly, supportive and inclusive environment
  • We cater for all fitness levels
  • Beginner Runners receive encouragement and motivation
  • Intermediate Runners are challenged
  • You receive instruction on how to structure your own training programs
  • Inspiring, professional, qualified coaches

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.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING...

When I first joined I only intended on training for another half marathon as I thought that a marathon was not achievable for an average runner as myself. I have now completed countless half marathons, 2 marathons, 64km ultra and 3 marathons in 3 days! This would not have been possible if not for Lorraine and all the Dynamic Running members who have encouraged and inspired me all the way. Being a member of Dynamic Running has changed my life and made me realise anything really is possible, in running and in life.
Chrissy
I joined Dynamic Running Club in 2015 never having run more than 5km in my life and being a senior (over 55 years) I didn’t think I could run. Since joining I have run two half marathons and the Rome Marathon in April 2017 for my 60th birthday.
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.
Diane
I had never been a member of a running club before, as I had always felt intimidated, and scared I would be left behind! From first meeting Lorraine, she has encouraged and inspired me. I have entered races, and achieved times, I would never have believed I was capable of.. The club’s members are friendly and supportive of each other, and this is a reflection of Lorraine’s leadership. She has great communication and organisational skills, so club nights and events run smoothly and are fun, for everyone involved.
