Collaroy Beach to Long Reef Headland Gratitude Run

The cool thing about gratitude is that it weighs nothing, you can carry it wherever you go.

With a bit of practice you’ll start to notice that the gratitude you carry actually makes everything else feel lighter.

Hands are full, got no pockets? Not a problem. Everyone has a space in their heart to carry gratitude and if you feel you have enough, you can always share your gratitude with those around you.

… and that’s your reason to join in the Sunday Gratitude runs!


Meeting next to Collaroy Beach Club

Warming up at 7:55am, waiting for the run to start


Simply meet us at Collaroy Beach, on Sunday mornings. We head off at 8:00am sharing a fun, casual run up around Long Reef headland and back (see map below).  Then kick off your runners with a cuppa on the beach and enjoy the sand between your toes with new friends.

Collaroy Beach’s Gratitude Run was the brainchild of Renata Malinauskas.  Renata is the fitness trainer, dietitian, meditation coach, all-round Health Lovely and owner of Holistic Movement Studio at Collaroy.

Today was the Gratitude Run’s 1st month anniversary. Fernando and Aline brought a special post-run breakfast, cooked fresh on the BBQs next to Collaroy SLSC.

Holistic Movement Studio is fast becoming the favourite fitness training, meditation and yoga centre in Collaroy. If you’ve been looking for an holistic fitness centre that provides a full range of services and activities, but you don’t want to be just another number at a big impersonal fitness chain, then I highly recommend the Holistic Movement Studio at Collaroy Beach. Renata lives what she teaches and has crafted something really special, and truly holistic.


See you at next week’s run!

Collaroy Gratitude Run details:
Leaves from Collaroy Beach walkway, on the South side of the Collaroy Beach Club at 8:00am. We run up to the headland, regroup, then loop around Long Reef golf course and back to where we start from.  Bring your runners, a smile and a bit of change for a cuppa. It’s an easy, social pace. All levels are welcome. As the water warms up some of us may jump in the surf for a post-run dip, so feel free to bring swimmers/towel.
