About the Run Culture Owls?

The Run Culture Owls are an elite distance running group based on the beautiful  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 group is young but has big plans.

Some of which are:

  • 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 a dozen athletes that don’t just feature prominently in the domestic running scene but are competitive internationally.

  • To be completely open, honest, transparent and precent on today’s social media platforms and amongst the community in regards to rostered athletes plans, goals, training, set backs, rehab details, the works.

  • To provide running fans 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 ie. charity, community reach, fun run plans etc…


I urge everyone to join us for the ride. Let’s Run.Live.Grow together!
