The Gen Run Squad meet for group training SIX days a week; rain, hail or shine!

Sessions are interesting and varied, and designed to cater for all levels of runners. Our members range from casual beginners to seasoned athletes with an array of ambitions; so whatever your ability or training goals, you are guaranteed to get something out of every session.

*All track sessions are run under lights! 

MONDAY – 6:45pm – Croydon Athletics Track

Monday evenings are a fun, fast-paced speed session on the track. You will find you push yourself harder when running with others and might surprise yourself with some speed you didn’t know you had! For those who have raced the day before, there is always the option of an easy recovery run in company.

TUESDAY – 9:45am – Lilydale Lake *NEW SESSION!*

By popular demand we have now introduced this brand new fully coached training session for those who wish to train mid-morning. Suitable for all abilities and held at Lilydale Lake; you can drop the kids off at school, have a sleep-in, or utilise your morning off work, and head on down to join the squad for training!

TUESDAY – 6:45pm – Lilydale Lake

Join the Squad for an interval, tempo or fartlek session at the lake. This session is suitable for all levels.

WEDNESDAY – 6:15am – Croydon Athletics Track

For the early risers, this track session offers a great start to the day with a quick spin of the legs as the sun rises. Focusing on technique, pace and speed endurance, you will enjoy your breakfast even more after this session.

WEDNESDAY – 4:15pm – Croydon Athletics Track

Recreational Running training for juniors aged 7-15 years in a fun, supportive and non-competitive environment. Coaching for technique, coordination, fitness, team work and lots of fun!

THURSDAY – 6:30pm – Croydon Athletics Track *FREE SESSION – Gold Coin Donation*

This fully coached, free, weekly Gen Run Community Club initiative; run in conjunction with the Maroondah City Council and in support of Oscars 100, is designed to keep the community moving and provides another fantastic opportunity for you to train under the watchful eye of the Gen Run Squad qualified coaches. All we ask for is a gold coin donation for our charity partners Oscars 100 – an organisation committed to improving the lives of children living with Autism. 

Join us every a Thursday evening for alternating Tempo/Time Trials/Speed work on the track. EVERYONE WELCOME!

FRIDAY – 6:15am – Lilydale Lake & Mt Evelyn Athletics Track (alternating)

Not for the faint-hearted – this morning session finds our Squad running the hills before breakfast! With hill repeats, hill loops and hill running technique as the focus, Friday mornings are a sure way to develop gluteal strength and power, to improve speed and stamina on the flat. Flat running options are always available.

SATURDAY – 8am – Lilydale Lake in conjunction with Parkrun

Saturday morning sessions are a free, in-coached, social run for all and sundry. Bring along friends and family, ride the bike, push the pram or walk/run the dog around the lake, participate in Parkrun or head out along the meandering Olinda Creek or Warburton Trails. Gen Runners training for distance events often use this session as part of their long run, with a social catch up for breakfast at a local café to follow.

    Hi I am wondering if I am able to come along and try out a session and how I go about it.

    Thanks Rachel.

    Hi Bec/Steve i came along to your easter night at croydon and have been running for aboit a year now with no coaching. I feel like i have hit a wall and.am in need of some advice as im going to do two halfs and a full marathon bu the end of the year. I work shift work and cant always make certain days every week. Is it possible to work out a training plan if i can get to one of your meetings and i can sign up with a casual pass at this stage with a view to try and make 1 to 2 classes a week. Also how long are you classes on average or do they differ. I just want to know if i could make a 7am start at work after a class. I just work main street lilydale. Regards Andrew.

    Hey,

    I’m a local to the area but work in the city. Not sure how many sessions I’ll be able to make, what time do the morning sessions finish roughly?

    Also what are the costs involved?

    I’m still pretty new to running, just coming back from a bad ankle injury and building my fitness back up. Are all levels of fitness welcome at each session?

    Thanks Naomi

    Hi.

    Thanks!

    Hi there,
    I am keen to get into jogging but need to learn the correct breathing/pace ratio as I find I get too out of breath too quickly.
    I am wondering if the Tuesday session as Lilydale Lake would be suitable for me? What is the cost involved for this session and approximately how long does the session go for?
    Would the Thursday night session also be suitable for me? Approximately how long does this session go for?
    Kind Regards, Dee

    • Hi Deanna and thank you for your inquiry. We can most definitely assist you with your running and breathing! Either of these sessions would be absolutely perfect for you and we encourage you to come along for a FREE TRIAL and to meet us all when it suits you, before making any commitment. The sessions all run for one hour, including warm-up and cool-down. We have a vast range of runners, all varying in ages and abilities, all sessions are fully coached and we are not intimidating at all. You will, I have no doubt, fit right on in!
