News & Impact
Queer Running Club was established in January 2019. This year we are celebrating FIVE years of queer people running together with two very special events - the QRC rave and TRANSCEND. See below for more details.
QRC is political by its very nature. When queer people support one another it’s a political act of radical care against systemic oppressions that have historically held our community back, trivialised our experience and marginalised our existence. Queer Running Club is not a big business, all funds raised from ticket sales contributes to the running cost of the club, from paying the queer and trans individuals who dedicate their time to coaching, organising events and races to fundraising, designing merchandise and making Queer Running Club more than just a run.
We regularly fundraise for our community and have donated to individuals gender affirming surgeries and LGBTQIA+ charities including Positive East and Mermaids.
We have several ways that we can support one another via pay it forward tickets or, we offer discounted wiggle room tickets. Please email us directly if you’re on a lower income and cannot afford the runs at the moment.
