I would just like to say that my children have really enjoyed the cross country running events that your club hosts weekly.  The events are well organised and run smoothly.  They have all enjoyed the events and we are looking forward to the next season.   I would like to thank all the volunteers who work so hard to ensure that the events go ahead each week, as I appreciate a lot of work goes on both on the day and behind the scenes.  Please pass on my appreciation to all involved…..and see you again next season.

Thanks to the loyal team from Queensland Running who give so unselfishly of their time week in and week out so that we can enjoy our running in a family friendly environment, even in conditions like today. The most friendly, helpful and down-to-earth people ever!

"Thank you to the QR organisers for all the time and effort you put in to organise the weekly competitions and the season as a whole. It is very much appreciated by me, and I am sure by everyone else who takes part regularly. I have only started running last year and I love how friendly and casual your events are, and seeing the wide range of athletes who take part, both in terms of age and ability. It is great to see two and three generations of family together enjoying themselves and keeping fit."

Gary Langley


"I just wanted to thank you and your families, plus all the dedicated volunteers at Queensland Running, for all the time and effort that you put in to make each Cross Country season such a success. 

The friendly atmosphere, encouragement, and focus on enjoyment that is evident at each meet, is a credit to the organisation behind the scenes and the team of volunteers that assist every week.  It has certainly been a pleasure to be part of Queensland Running for the last year or so, and I look forward to seeing you all again in March 2012 (only about 200 sleeps away now)."

Best Regards, Roy Edmunds



"To the organising committee/volunteers - Queensland Running

Just a short note to express our continued appreciation for all your efforts in organising the various cross country events across Brisbane.

We first came to Queensland Running about 3 years ago as part of my son's training for his school cross-country. Since then all our family (wife, younger daughter and even myself) are now regular participants and look forward to our Saturdays out and about with Queensland Running.

The challenging variety of courses matched with the professional organisational skills of the Queensland Running team make attending your events an absolute pleasure.

I have absolutely no reservations in recommending your events to anyone looking to get fit through running - no matter what your level of ability. Everyone is welcome."

Kind regards, Martin Leech


"Thanks for your time, and thanks for this excellent series. I make a point of recommending it to my acquaintances who run - there is nothing like the heat of competition to improve, but your series provides a relaxed and welcoming environment for people looking to try cross country and competitive running." - Craig Brown


"To all at Queensland Running: Thank you for another wonderful year of not only competition but good fun as well! Thank you for your dedication and commitment every Saturday." - Josh and Anna VandeWiel


"Thanks for putting on a great event each Saturday afternoon."


"I am amazed at the service provided by the good people who run the Queensland Running cross country races on Saturday afternoon.  As a teacher/ cross country coach and also as a middle distance coach with a squad outside of school, I am so appreciative of the blessing that Qld Running is. We are presented with a healthy, supportive, well organised environment that provides great running opportunities both for those simply looking to run and also for those athletes at a higher level who use the races as a crucial part of their training program. I am very thankful."


"Queensland Running enabled me, as a father, to impart the love of running on to my four children. As a family, we share in a common interest that we all enjoy. My family is, I believe, very close as a result of Queensland Running."


"Love the friendly atmosphere, the variety of events (and Ailsa's cooking)."


"The friendly, positive attitude of volunteers, officials and other competitors is quite encouraging, particularly for me as a 'back-of-the-pack' runner. The venues are convenient and courses well marked, the marshalls most helpful and the family atmosphere is great."


"Competition is provided in a friendly and supportive envirnoment, whilst allowing you to compete at your own level."


"As a masters runner who is more interested in sprinting, I enjoy running with Queensland Running because they provide friendly competition for runners of all abilities, and the opportunity to run any distance from 500m right up to 8km."
