26/06/2023 - Weekly newsletter for Run Move Connect members!''

Hello members,

There is a buzz about the community! We are very excited for Mat Pilates to join our timetable this week on Tuesday nights. Please see below for more information on this.

Mat Pilates with Paige joins RMC

Run Move Connect will be offering Mat Pilates that is gentle, low impact and intensity and friendly for all physical capabilities.

Pilates is a great form of exercise that creates mindfulness around how our body moves. Pilates focuses on core stability, strength and flexibility whilst paying special attention to muscle control, posture and breathing.

We believe Mat Pilates will compliment our other training types as it will further enhance body awareness, develop movement patterns and encourage breathe work through exercise.

We are very excited to welcome Paige to our RMC team and the Huon Valley. Paige is a mother of two, qualified Nurse and Midwife and all round beautiful person. Paige is a newly qualified Pilates Instructor and we believe with her passion for movement and zest for life, you will be just as motivated and empowered by her presence in our new classes.

Our first sessions will be held on Tuesday the 27th of June at 6:45pm and 7:30pm, in the RMC studio at the PCYC. There are 15 spots available, so get in quick to secure yours!



Please book via our booking portal.



Social Saturday

What another sensational morning we had at Reba Sear for our Social Saturday's run/walk. This week we held our monthly time trial and it was another month of big progressions with some huge performances coming through, PB's were everywhere! Another shout out and thankyou to our amazing time keepers, Karen Weger and Jenna Driessen.

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!

FREYCINET CIRCUITS TRAIL RUN - The Freycinet Peninsula is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful locations in the world. With 29 km of exceptional track interspersed with pristine beaches this trail run will be hard to race with the temptation to stop for a swim or take in the view!

There are two options for this trail run with a shorter 11 km circuit via Wineglass Bay and Hazards Beach, and the full 29 km circuit taking in Mt Graham and Cooks Beach. If this is your first trail run we strongly suggest you do the shorter circuit. We cannot take walkers on the long circuit due to the time it takes to complete that distance. If entering the 29km run you need to provide evidence of your capability to complete the course in under 5:30hrs.

We recommend the 29 km run for experienced trail runners, the course is rough underfoot and is marked only with cairns in some parts of the track.

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.

  • You will work the same muscle groups over two stations

  • Like eccentric loading, you will build bigger and stronger muscles.

  • 12-15 repetitions should be performed

  • Moderate resistance recommended


  • Please take SWEAT TOWELS and drink bottles with you throughout the session.

  • Please advise the instructor if you have any new or old injuries that they should be aware of or will impact your training. We will support you with your exercise and provide alternative exercises.
