Tan Track is Back

HypoActive runners, walkers and bicycle riders are once again meeting to take on the high profile, central Melbourne loop - The Tan. Don't let the fact that we're in the last days of winter deter you from joining in - put some spring in your heels, bring along your bottle of BGL lotion and come and get Tanned.

The Tan Track is a 3.8 km track around King's Domain and the Botanic Gardens. Originally a horse track for Melbourne's well-hoofed, The Tan today is one of Melbourne's most frequented locations. Locals, visitors, celebrities and plenty of type 1's all now share the spacious path and its luscious green surroundings. Once covered in tan-bark, the track now has a tan-coloured aggregate surface round most of the BoTANic Gardens, but to this day no one is quite sure how it came to be known as The Tan.

John Thompson - always on the type 1 run

Everybody is always welcome, regardless of your fitness level and you determine how far you want to run/walk/ride and how fast. The other option is just come and meet everyone at the Café for refreshments around 10.30 am. It would be a pleasure to see you there.

The meeting point is on the corner of Birdwood Avenue and Domain Road, in the park, Melways Ref: 2L D2. (9.30 am SHARP!) Coffee afterwards at Domain Brasserie (181 Domain Rd, South Yarra), right across the road.
