South Pine Striders is a running club based in Eatons Hill, Lake Samsonvale and the wider Pine Rivers area of Brisbane, South East Queensland.
Many people in our area like to run and walk. We live in beautiful surrounds and it’s good to get out and enjoy the place we live. It’s even more fun when we can do it with others. Apart from safety and good company, others inspire us, push us further and keep us accountable.
Our vision: get active, stay active, set personal goals and achieve them, and meet new friends in the process.
South Pine Striders was started in 2005 and has been serving the Pine Rivers running community since then. Our aim is to bring active people together for a run. Come along to one of our sessions: ‘Striders’ as we typically call ourselves, like to think we’re a friendly bunch and always happy to welcome new runners to our community.
The club has a core of experienced runners and walkers who are happy to share their experiences with others, whether complete newcomers or seasoned marathon veterans.
South Pine Striders is a not for profit incorporated association run by its members. Our vision is to encourage people to get and stay active, set personal goals and achieve them, and build new friendships in the process. We aim to have a strong club presence at several major running events in South East Queensland each year such as the Brisbane, Gold Coast, Noosa and Sunshine Running Festivals. We are spoilt for choice with events taking place just about every weekend in the running season. Not many events go by without at least a couple of Striders taking part!
Our club is not all about race day participation – in fact, participating in these events is not everyone’s cup of tea and there is no expectation either. Coming to our weekly training sessions is great fun and beneficial in it’s own right and plenty of members choose not to take their running any further than that.
If you like to get involved in other ways, South Pine Striders regularly volunteer at our home parkrun Warner Lakes and each year we’re involved with race day support for local events like Pine Rivers Fun Run and Jetty 2 Jetty.
