Achilles Running Club Sydney

The Sydney chapter of the Achilles Running Club was started in 1996. It is part of a worldwide organisation represented within about 60 countries.

Achilles aims to enable people from all walks of life, including those with physical impairments, to enjoy the health giving benefits of walking and running in a supportive, social and encouraging environment. In so doing it hopes to promote personal achievement, to enhance self-esteem and to lower barriers between people.

Where To Find Us

You will find us every Sunday morning, rain, hail or shine, on the steps of theArt Gallery of NSW opposite the Domain at 8:10am.

We train (walk or run) for an hour, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of some of Sydney's most spectacular parts - the Royal Botanic Gradens, the Opera House, Mrs. Macqauarie's Point.

For those of  you  who have some form of physical disability and want to enjoy the benefits of walking and running, Achilles is for you!  Those of you who are not physically challenged and want to help others enjoy exercise can act as a "guide" for the disabled members in training and in races. You are NOT expected to be an expert in health or fitness or physical disabilities - training is provided. You simply need the desire to help those who are physically less fortunate than yourself.
