The Athlete's Foot Ballarat Run Club is headed up by Coach Louie and offers a FREE weekly social run to Ballarat runners.  It is a warm, friendly and supportive group of runners of all ability levels and there are different distance options available each week for you to choose from.

There is never any pressure to run further or faster. The focus is on doing what you feel comfortable with and enjoying the run!

Our run club wouldn’t be what it is today without the passion and energy that Lou has provided :)
