Thompson Estate and Eastern Suburbs Athletics (TEES) is a well-established Brisbane athletics and cross country running club

We train Monday and Thursday 6 pm to 7:30 pm at Vince Herbert Oval, 391 Stanley Rd, Carina

We train people of all running abilities to achieve their personal goals in fitness, athletics and cross country running. Our training sessions are fun, friendly and free for members! Train as hard or as easy as you want. You’ll find people from all walks of life at TEES.

What to expect

Arrive about 5:55 pm and tell anyone its your first time at TEES and they will introduce you to the head coach.

At 6 pm the distance group do two laps of the track for a warmup, then we perform dynamic stretching, then the main session which is usually three sets of running drills, and then usually a cooldown stretch that sometimes includes an ab workout.

On Mondays there is a kids group, a distance group and a sprint group. Currently Mondays there is also a throws group (eg Shot Put and Javelin).

On Thursdays its a distance group (kids can participate in this group) and a sprint group.
