The Seagulls' first season in the Gold Coast Rugby League competition was in 1979 but did not win their first 1st grade title until 1997 when they defeated Cudgen 18–17 in the Gold Coast -Group 18 competition. They won again in 2000 by easily accounting for Burleigh 32–0.

Runaway Bay joined the Mixwell Cup in 2003 but have struggled to compete in both A Grade and Colts sometimes forfeiting matches due to lack of players. It is expected they will pull out of the competition in 2006 and concentrate their efforts fully on the Gold Coast Rugby League.
