Warwick runners take five30 concept in their steady stride
WHEN Garry Wells came up with the five30 concept in Newcastle three years ago, he had no idea it would take off running across the world.
Little did he realise runners in Warwick would take it in their stride.
The five30 concept is aimed at runners in the “middle of the pack”, according to Mr Wells.
The running coach said he loved being part of the group.
“The aim is to run five kilometres in 30 minutes,” he said.
“We’ve got about 1600 members, including runners in the USA and Europe.”
The free group is open to members of all ages.
“We’ve got a really strong group her in Warwick,” he said.
“Geelong also has a big group.”
A group of the runners raced in every event at the Warwick Pentath-run, including a group of local parkrunners.
“I love coming here,” Mr Wells said.
“This is my second time”
