The Toowoomba Road Runners offer nine organised weekly runs catering to all running abilities. Locations are scattered throughout town allowing runners to experience the different streets, laneways, trails and parks around the Garden City.
We operate a ‘turn-back’ approach, with faster runners turning back to slower runners at different points during a run, ensuring all members start and finish at the same time.
Our Monday afternoon runs start from Middle Ridge Park on Stenner St at 5:30pm. They are similar in distance and difficulty to the Friday afternoon runs and suit medium/faster runners (5:30min/km or faster) | Monday Calendar | Course Maps: Nielsen Park | High St | Nelson St | Trails North (Summer) | Trails North (Winter) | East Creek | Hospital | USQ | Picnic Point | Trails South (Summer) | Trails South (Winter) | West Creek | Centenary Heights | Gold Park / Golf | Rangeville Ramble | Handley St | Smithfield
Tuesday interval sessions are held in the Godsall St oval of Queens Park and led by Pieter and Emily from Optimise Health. All abilities are welcome and these sessions are perfect for absolute new runners to those fine tuning their race preparations. They’re a great way to improve your speed and running strength.
Wednesday runs start from the Mothers’ Memorial BBQ area and all run on the same course. For the afternoon session, there is a beginner/slower group that starts at 5:20pm before the 5:30pm main group.

Thursday runs are the hardest of the week and typically involve hills / faster pace. They start at Queens Park, near the corner of Margaret and Lindsay Streets.
There are two separate Friday runs, one at 5:30am starting in Webb Park carpark and another at 5:30pm starting from Newtown Park Car Park. Beginners who are able to run 10km are encouraged to attend the morning run. Friday afternoon runs are faster and are similar in length and difficulty as Monday afternoon runs.
