Running Event News

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!

CONGRATULATIONS to Aleisha and Mel who completed the Russel Falls trail run! The 6km event was held on Sunday at The Mount Field Nation Park. With some rain sprinkled in during the event, both Aleisha and Mel loved the event and ran well in classic trail running conditions!


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.


Ross Running Festival - RMC will be well represented with a number of our members making the trip to the midlands to participate in what will be a fantastic event. The Ross Running Festival will be held on Sunday the 24th of September offering a range of different distances available for all abilities! If you're keen to join us for a great run in this historic town the click HERE. A timetable of events is provided below.

  • 7:00 am Marathon

  • 8:00 am Half Marathon

  • 9:00 am 10km

  • 9:30 am 5km

  • 10:00am 2km (Children’s Challenge)

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! Join team Run Move Connect by clicking HERE to register!


If you have any questions about any of the events and would like to find out more please get in contact with Brad.

STRENGTH SESSIONS


FOCUS THIS WEEK IS ECCENTRIC


- The focus is on very slow and control movement patterns, particularly on the stretching out of the muscle


- Eccentric exercises allow the muscle to tear, to build/repair stronger and bigger muscles


- This is a fantastic way to get stronger in a faster manner


- Moderate to heavy weight, 6-8 repetitions


- As it is a slow movement, ensure you maintain great trunk control and technique throughout-



GENERAL CLASS REMINDERS

  • 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.

  • Please be prompt to classes as we aim to start demonstration on time.
