Well that’s a wrap on our second season as an official incorporated QLD running club. Our AGM was held on Saturday 19 October at the conclusion of St Lucia parkrun
It was the time to reflect on our season and what was achieved as individuals and as a club.
Membership was slightly down from the previous year.
Fortius Running Club was established in 2017 and Our vision remains: BUILDING STRONGER RUNNERS
Many of our members benefited through the discounts we were able to receive through our partnerships with various races in and around the South East Queensland area and some achieved outstanding PB’s or reached their goals because of the hard work you put in. Congratulations to everyone.
I would like to pay special mention to the committee who work behind the scenes keeping this club running. I’d like to acknowledge the outgoing committee members from this season, specifically Pat and Aaron who had a big part in getting the club off the ground in 2017. Here’s to a bigger and better 2020 season!
The full report can be found in Team App.

Presidents Award 2020
Mirjana has only got into running in the last 12 months and after originally running 5km in just under an hour has challenged herself over and over this year to eventually get her 10km time down from around 2hours to just over 90mins now. Mirjana has benefited from our motto of building stronger runners and embodies the all-inclusive nature of our club.
