What are the sessions like? The sessions are designed by one of Sydney University Athletic Club’s athletes who holds multiple NSW and UniSport titles and has coached for over 15 years.  The sessions are tailored to assist you build towards a great fun run based on your current level of fitness & running background. You will learn skills and techniques to prevent injury.

What happens if there is poor weather or rain? All the sessions are on grass so in the event of rain, the oval may be closed and the session cancelled for safety. Refer weather updates above which will be updated prior to each session

Who are the coaches?  Our coaches are accomplished current members of Sydney University Athletics Club, USYD students and super keen to train you (and have fun)!

Where do we meet? At the RUNSYDUNI flags on Oval No. 1. You will be allocated a group by our coaches.

What should I wear? Comfortable clothing and running shoes! Sweat-wicking fabrics are best. Always a good idea to bring a water bottle on hotter days.

Can I join at part way through the semester? Yes, but the sooner you commence, the the fitter you will be & the more fun you will have.

What if I miss a session? No problem, we will see you at the next session!

Can I bring my bags? Participants are welcome to bring their bags to sessions, our coaches will keep an eye on them but understandably, cannot be held responsible for your private belongings.

Can I change before a session or shower after? Yes there are change rooms at Oval No. 1.  Alternatively become a member of Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness (SUSF) if you aren’t already and you can shower at either the University Sports & Aquatic Centre or Arena Sports Centre.
