17/07/2023 - Weekly newsletter for Run Move Connect members!''

Hello members,

Another great week for RMC with new members joining us and old faces returning. We love those smiling faces leaving the gym and positive energy you all bring to our classes.

New Room, Same Feels

We are very excited to welcome our new space to you all this week. Our second RMC room will be up and running after some extensive work from some amazing people.We have created a special place for the whole family to enjoy.

With the addition of a kids area, our new area is safe, functional and all-inclusive.

A big shout out to Chris Squires and Stephen Bowden for their incredible efforts in bringing our vision to life. Thank you to the PCYC team for supporting our project and the donation of flooring from Neville Smith Forest Projects.Thank you to Brooke Lovell and the team at Mitre 10 Huonville for the donation of flooring vanish and paint. Thank you to our generous members who donated toys, created toys and lent a helping hand along the way.

We love our community and we are so proud of the space we get to share with you.

Please ensure your shoes are clean prior to entering the room! Maybe even wear your slides to class and swap in to your runners (great idea Joey Stevenson).

We need to take great care of our facility and ensure it stays in tip top shape!

Dover Fun Run!

Registrations are now open for the Dover fun run. There are limited spots available and we would love to see a massive turnout from the RMC community participating at the event. Last year we were able to get 35 members along to the event. This year, we want to see 100+! Details on the event and how to register is below in our running events section.



Please book via our booking portal.


Social Saturday

The rain didn't keep everyone away- welldone to all who showed up today!

We always say 'rain, hail or shine, the show must go on'

See you next week for our monthly time trial.

🏃🏽‍♂️ Once a month we offer the opportunity to our members and the Huon Valley community to have your 5km time recorded to track progress and for a bit of fun! 🏃🏼‍♀️

🏃🏼‍♀️ Of course, for those that would like to treat this like any other Social Saturday run and choose not to have your time recorded, we encourage you to still join us!


Upcoming Running Events

Did someone say, trail running? YES! With a quieter upcoming July/August period on the Tasmanian road running scene, we will start to turn our attention to some of Tasmania's most beautiful trail running events coming up!

RUSSEL FALLS TRAIL RUN - Russell Falls is an ideal beginners trail run –or just a whole heap of fun for the more experienced trail runner!! It takes in a couple of the most beautiful waterfalls in Tassie as well as some of Tassie's tallest trees. The trail is pretty much wheel chair standard, except for the stairs!

TOLOSA HALF AND QUARTER TRAIL RUN - This is an authentic mountain half-marathon that offers incredible diversity and is challenging. Runners in both events will leave the edge of suburbia, before the open woodland gradually morphs into a denser and greener mixed forest. From towering eucalypts to the lichen-ridden dolerite, the Tolosa Half and Quarter have it all. Runners will need to navigate some technical rocky terrain, but overall, these are courses that flow very well.

The Tolosa Quarter (Sport | 9.8km) sees runners turn around at the Old Hobartians Track while the Tolosa Half runners will keep going for more jaw-dropping views and intricate hand-made wooden bridges, to The Springs, which are approximately the halfway point. Then it’s a beautifully flowing descent along the purpose-built North-South track.

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. Online registrations close Friday, 3 November 2023 at 11 pm. Numbers are limited!
