09/10/2023 - Weekly newsletter for Run Move Connect members!''

Hello to all of our RMC Members,

This is our last week to get registered for the Hilltop Hike! A great fundraiser for the PCYC youth drop in centre aimed at improving the health and well being of the Huon Valley youth. See the event details below and get registered today!



Just a little reminder that with class sizes increasing and lots of our little loves in our kids area that we need to listen to our instructors during the demonstration time. Many members use this time to understand the layout of the workout and specific cueing tips for the exercises. When there is lots happening around us, we may not hear the important facts and can make it difficult for our trainers to effectively support everyone's technique.

With school holidays in full swing, please be mindful with kids running through the gym as they may be a hazard to you or themselves. We want to look after our Little RMC tikes so please ensure they don't lift the weights and keep them close to you if they are on the studio floor.


SAVE THE DATE for the RMC family Christmas party which will be held on Sunday the 10th of December from 12pm. RMC have booked the Glen Huon Hall for a fun family day in the park. A couple of food vans will be

Social Saturday

** Will Social Saturday be going ahead the same day as Hilltop Hike?

Yes! The Hilltop Hike starts at 10am and we understand some of you might not be free at that time, so keeping the option for some movement at 8am will still be available! We do expect a few less running due to the event but we encourage everyone to still come out for a walk or light run before the event and a quick caffeine hit before we tackle Scenic Hill!**


PCYC Huon Valley and RMC Join Forces

PCYC and RMC are joining forces together with support of the Alcohol and Drug Foundation to provide youth, between 14-20 years of age, a free 20 week all-access membership. This is a fantastic opportunity for youth that are finishing winter sport and looking for an activity to participate in through the summer period, an inactive adolescent who is wanting to engage within their community in a healthy and positive manner or simply a teenager who wants to exercise along side their parent or friend.

Please reach out to Bianca Jackman at Huon Valley PCYC via email - or drop in to the centre through the week

Exercise Physiology and Personal Training at RMC

We are very excited to announce that Hannah Squires (Exercise Physiologist) and Annie Cordwell (Personal Trainer) will be taking on individual sessions in September.

More information on specific session details will be provided in the coming weeks but please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any burning questions.

Watch this space!

Brad Kitto is taking individual running coaching already for those who have specific running goals or targets. He is always up for a chat if you have questions on this form of individual training.

Huonville Hilltop Hike- RMC would love to do the best we can to support this amazing, local event. A fantastic initiative has become an annual event to support the mental health of the Huon Valley youth. This year, funds are being raised for The Huon Valley PCYC Youth Drop-In Centre, extending its vital services to more days a week aiming to keep young community members off the streets and provide a safe place to gather and be supported. Hilltop Hike 2023 happens on Saturday, October 14th, starting at 10am at the Huon Valley PCYC. If you would like to join team RMC to walk or run for a big reason, please click HERE.


DOVER FUNRUN - Boasting one of the most scenic fun run routes, the Dover Fun Run takes runners along the foreshore of Port Esperance, with stunning views of the bay and the iconic Adamsons Peak. The Dover Fun Run (Tassal Ten and Annabelle’s Run) was born out of a long-standing desire to give back to the community, in thanks for the wonderful support for the Skinner family in their time of need. This running event is a fundraiser! All profits will go the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the Royal Hobart Hospital. You can also donate to PICU during the registration or on the day.

Check points are at every 2km. You can ran as far or as little as you like.
