The Run Culture Owls are an elite distance running group based on the beautiful 'Ninch' Mornington Peninsula, in Victoria, Australia.
Coached and mentored by Athletics Australia accredited level 1 and 2 recreational run coach; Dane Verwey, the group is full of a dozen athletes that completely and utterly adore all things running.
Established in 2019. The team has big goals!
To be a group that is admired domestically and internationally for its consistent high level of performance, positive team ethos, rich cuture and highly regarded training initiatives and reasoning.
To have a roster of athletes that don’t just feature prominently in the domestic running scene but are competitive internationally.
To be completely open, honest, transparent and to hold ourselves highly accountable both on and off the track.
To provide the running community something to passionately follow, learn from, root for, live and die by. To show that following the ups and downs, ins and outs of an elite distance running team can be just as exciting as following your favourite football team, tennis player, golfer, F1 driver.
To educate and provide an avenue - a future and some inspiration to keep/attract more people to this amazing sport.
To promote the value daily physical activity has on maintaining our overall long term physical and mental health in a world that has never been so sedentary. To not only promote this message but actively take steps to increase the activity levels in the community.
I urge everyone to join us for the ride. Let’s Run.Live.Grow together!
