The Alice Springs Running and Walking Club has been active since 1979, promoting and encouraging running and walking as both a competitive sport and for recreational enjoyment and fitness.
Our event calendar caters for all levels of fitness and ability, from the short distance fun runs and walks, to the classic race events such as the 10 km Series, the Half Marathon and the Alice Springs Running Festival.
Held in August, the Alice Springs Running Festival is the Club’s flagship event and comprises four distances: 5km, 10km, 21.1km Half Marathon and 42.2km Marathon.
A major contributor to the success of our club is our coordination of the Road & Cross Country events for the Alice Springs Masters Games. The Masters Games are held every second year, the next event being held this year, 2018.
