15-Year Anniversary

It’s our anniversary! Late January 2018 marks 15 years since Gunn Runners began. Some things haven’t changed – the regular Tuesday run has always been one lap of Albert Park – and the spirit of the club has always been one of friendliness, inclusiveness and encouragement of all running abilities. We’ve always met at a pub before the run and then encouraged people to stay for a drink and a meal afterwards. Over that time over 500 people have run with us (and shared a drink with us)  – and a few of the originals are still hanging around!

We now meet at the Limerick Arms but this hasn’t always been the case – it all began at the Gunn Island Hotel in Middle Park. People sometimes ask ‘why Gunn Runners?’ It is a reference to Gunn Island, the small island at the north end of Albert Park Lake, and also to the pub where we first met.

Anniversary party!

Plans are coming together nicely for the Gunnies 15th anniversary party. The party will be on Saturday Feb 3, from 3pm at the Middle Park Hotel (the current name of the Gunn Island Hotel). The format will be buy your own drinks – some food will be provided at no charge. Everyone who has had an association with Gunn Runners and partners are welcome. Please RSVP to info@gunnrunners.com.au so we know how many are coming.
