16/01/2022 - Weekly newsletter for Run Move Connect members!

Hello to members new and old,

Before we get into what's coming up for the week ahead, it would be rude of us not to recognise the big weekend of birthdays that was had from our two RMC head coaches Hannah and Brad. Thank you to all for the kind messages and and well wishes sent for our birthdays, we appreciate it (no we are not twins or related, just coincidently have our birthdays one day apart, haha).

We're looking forward to another big week of training. We love seeing lots of our members jumping back into some sort of routine and making RMC strength and running sessions a big part of that.

Lets kick off this week!


Timetable (no changes)


Upcoming Running Events

Below is some details on upcoming running events. The night of 5s is only two weeks away and we would love to see as many RMC'ers at the athletics track as possible. This is a great opportunity for those that have never ran on the synthetic athletics track before.

Night of 5s is an event organised by OVA athletics club along with the "Knock off's" social run club. The purpose of the event is to introduce recreational runners to the track in a fun inclusive way. There will be 4-6 seeded races on the night meaning you will only be running with people in similar abilities to you. Race entries are only $10, to enter please click HERE.

Strength Session Details


  • Focus on trunk control, trunk alignment, knee stability, upper body mobility and movement patterns.

  • Light- moderate resistance but focus on slow movement with great technique.

  • Challenge your stability but be mindful that upper body stability is very hard when loaded to heavy, 

  • We are here to support you with your exercise so please do not hesitate yelling out for technique help.

  • Always chat to Hannah if you want to learn more about resistance exercise and its benefits.

  • All sessions are designed and developed by Hannah, if you have any feedback, please pass it on.

  • If you have any new or old injuries that you are carrying, please don't hesitate to let Hannah or Brad know so we can tailor the program to you. It is so important for you to feel supported and cared for at your Run Move Connect sessions.

  • Please take SWEAT TOWELS and drink bottles with you throughout the session. We have new RMC sweat towels, don't hesitate to purchase one if you struggling to find one.


Social Saturday

7am crew

This week we successfully ran our first "double" run group to give people the chance get in early and beat the heat. Thanks to all that came along for our two runs at 7am and 8am. Well done to all who turned up even in hot conditions, there's always a way to get it done even in the warm weather! Keep an eye out on socials in the future if the weather is looking to be over 30 degrees, we will offer the 7am start as well as the 8am.

Ed and Brad will be away in Adelaide for this upcoming weekend (21st) so keep an eye out for a special guest Social Saturday host and for our regular running/walkers to support and welcome any new faces that join us on the day :)

**Next time trial will be held on January the 28th**
