Our Team

Meet our Team!


Ayla Van Vooren
Founder & Organiser

She fell in love with running after moving to Sydney 5 years ago. As Sydney has so many beautiful routes to run, it didn’t take her long to get hooked. Looking to find people to share her enthusiasms with, she decided to take the opportunity to start this group. Against all her expectations, the group grew quickly and got a lot of good response!

“I love running, organising and I love bringing people together. Organising this group is the perfect combination of all! I get to share my passion, offer support and meet so many amazing girls. It’s been a crazy ride with up’s and downs, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I’m looking forward to what the future of ‘Girls Run Sydney’ will bring us!”


Sara Girls Run Sydney


Sara joined the group in the early stages, as she was one of the first regulars to join us weekly. She always looked forward to running with us, and made some amazing friends through this group. When Ayla had to take some time off, she stepped up and kept the group alive! Her enthusiasms for both running & the group is the perfect fit to the team!
