Your journey starts today

Let's run together!

We are passionate about teaching children and adults a love of running through a dynamic and unique form of training. As running is the foundation of most sports, we strive to bring out the best in each individual.

It's more than running.

A way of life.

Beyond improving performance, we also build confidence, focus and concentration. We firmly believe that a strong mind and fit body are key components to success and happiness in life.

Our classes for children are aimed at developing good technique and a life-long desire to run and stay fit. By planting the seeds for success through individualised goal-setting, children learn about the pleasure of setting and achieving goals – all within a safe, monitored framework.

Teenagers, whose bodies and brains are going through tremendous physical and chemical changes throughout adolescence, benefit from physical challenges that either sharpen their existing sporting skills or establish the fitness foundation that they may not yet have developed.

Achieving personal bests in a social environment outside their usual circle of friends and school peers is very motivating.

Come join the fun - we're looking forward to meeting you!

“Star Athletics is the ultimate running community for kids. Not only does it teach the very best in running (short and long distance) it creates a wealth of knowledge in the kids about the importance of being active, being fair and celebrating everyone. We love our Tuesday Run Club and cannot thank Kirsten enough for her continued dedication and passion to our kids and their running.”

“The most incredible coaching! My three boys thrived under Heather’s expert guidance AND they loved every minute of it! Thank you ”

Wendy Madden

“We were so lucky to come across Heather as a coach. My son needed coaching on running technique and speed to assist with his basketball and AFL (especially as he has suffered from Severs in the past). Heather is beyond amazing, with her expert guidance he has improved enormously and to date has had no injuries in his games thanks to her educating him on the importance of warming-up properly and stretching. We are so grateful to have Heather as a coach, her passion, drive and expert knowledge is just a bonus to how beautifully she interacts with all the kids she coaches. They adore her!”
