Want to learn how to be a better coach? These courses are for you!


We have some awesome Recreational Running Coach courses on soon! This coaching framework designed by Athletics Australia is essentially for people training runners for fun runs, half marathons, marathons and ultra marathons. These courses are particularly useful for personal trainers who are looking to move into the endurance and long run training space.

Level 2 Intermediate Recreational Running Coach
This course trains coaches to develop the fundamental technical and strategic skills for runners training for 5km through to marathon events. It covers topics such as warm ups, session planning and designing training programs. The course also develops the coach’s skills in managing groups of varied skill levels from novice through to elite.

Pre-requisite for the course is the Athletics Australia Level 1 Community Coach course. RCC for Level 1 is available for qualified cert 3 or 4 personal trainers who are taking the Recreational Running Coach pathway. Those applying for RCC are required to do so at least two weeks prior to the course to allow for processing.

Level 2 Advanced Recreational Running Coach
Level 2 Advanced further develops the concepts introduced at the intermediate course as well as introducing the areas of advanced programming, diet and nutritional guidance, running technique and injury management.
