GTRC mission and CODE

Good Times Running Club - Our Mission

Running takes your body, mind and spirit to a better place.

The Good Times Running Club (GTRC) is a Gold Coast based running club with a diverse community of runners of all ages and abilities.  Through training and participation in running events and social activities, we encourage and support our members to attain their running goals, foster a spirit of friendship, improve their well-being and give back to the local running community.

The aim of the GTRC is to build friendships, provide encouragement, and improve ourselves with no regard to age, cultural differences, gender, pace or experience.  Our goal is to learn and grow through shared experience, and to leave no runner behind.

our promise

Good Times Running Club is dedicated to providing regular runs, programs and social activities that are aimed to keep runners doing what they love to do – RUN.

GTRC caters to a wide variety of fitness levels, from the walker to avid runner.
