AAA Racing & Coaching - COVID-19 Virus
In light of the current situation relating to COVID-19 virus pandemic, we feel it's important to be clear where AAA Racing & Coaching stands.
At this point, our events aren't impacted but given the evolving nature of the issue, we will be updating this notice as and when there are changes to the situation. In the meantime, AARAC will adhere to any advisory suggestions, recommendations and directives as and when they are issued.
Our calendar remains unaffected but our priority is the welfare of our participants and those who attend our events with them. As such, we believe there is an element of self-care that needs to be applied by both ourselves and event attendees (as per Federal Government and WHO guidelines).
Minimisation of risk and self-care:
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
Regularly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash your hands with soap and water, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Practice good respiratory hygiene. Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of used tissues immediately and appropriately in a bin.
Don’t hesitate to contact us at if you have any questions or better still, learn everything you need to know with regard to the virus at the World Health Organisation website.
"... some of you will find yourself standing there in the corral come 1:00 am on August 15th, about to do exactly that [start lap 25].
Maybe with only a few others and maybe with a startled look on your face, surprised that, all of a sudden, you may be 'the guy' or gal who's going to pull this off." -
Alun Davies, Clint Eastwood RD

If you've never run, used to run, are already running and need a change of direction, we'll structure a plan specifically suited to your own requirements and the demands already placed on you.
We pay particular attention to time limitations and build sessions that get the utmost from the time you have available with a view to minimising impact on family and work.
If you're part of a club, association or simply a set of like-minded people, group coaching sessions may well be the way to go.
While not losing site of individual needs and goals, it's often the common interest that motivates and typically, activities undertaken in the company of friends and associates often produce the best results and it's often easier to start when you're in surrounded by individuals with a common objective.
The perfect arrangement for those with common goals and timeframes.
If you're in the company 'team' for the Brisbane Marathon, City to South, Gold Coast Marathon, Bridges of Brisbane or your weekly Parkrun, it's likely you're bound by the same training limitations as your cohort.
Why not undertake a joint schedule to prepare you for your upcoming goal?
