HYPOACTIVE SOCIAL RUN/WALK/RIDE No 65

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.

Carrum Calling

John Thompson, our bold and long-term fun run/walk/ride organiser, loves to break the rules and this month he's pulled a shiner. This get-together is not on the last Sunday of the month, but the penultimate one. Can we cope?

The reason for this is that Run Melbourne is on the 30th​, the final Sunday, and John and a few other keen as mustard type 1's will be there giving it their best shot and showing many thousands of people that type 1 diabetes doesn't stop athletic achievement and and a healthy lifestyle. Good for every one of them. So huge thanks really to John for thinking of those who are very fond of their monthly fun run/walk/ride and organising this event on an unconventional date. And it looks like a fantastic location, with plenty of distance to cover - or not - along the Patterson River.

Type 1 Gazelles at Jells

Event Date: Jun 25th

Active type 1's - and some of the not so active ones - will be meeting as usual on the last Sunday of the month at 9.30 am (SHARP!), this time at fabulous Jells Park. And it really is fabulous. Fit for the fittest and a whole lot more besides. Wildlife that will drive you crazy and scenery that has to be seen to be believed. It’s a truly wide open space in the middle of suburbia that will take you all the way out to deep bush and an almost remote experience. All within easy reaching distance.

Making a Splash at Fairfield Park Boathouse

Fairfield Park has some great routes for running, strolling or pedalling alongside both the Yarra River and Merri Creek. You can also rent skiffs, canoes and kayaks from the Boathouse for some of the very best fun and exercise over water. It's close to the urban sprawl, but has the feeling of being deep in the bush. The Main Yarra Trail runs right through here, as well as the River Circuit Trail, which you can easily connect as a medium-sized loop. There is a little elevation to get your heart beating at just the right rate, but the views along the river are fantastic.

Central, Comfy and Cool: Caulfield Park

This will be HypoActive's third visit to this splendid and centrally located venue with great access from major roads. There is a circuit of about 2.5 km and the tracks are bitumen, which makes them comfortable for all sorts of running, walking and cycling. All round it's the perfect spot for type 1's to get together for whatever level of exercise they choose.

2017 HYPOACTIVE RUN FOR THE KIDS

Team Running Event

This is a great opportunity to get out there in a massive high-profile Melbourne event wearing your HypoActive running gear and showing how type 1's won't be stopped from getting active and healthy. Whether you run fast or take your time, show the world you can do it!

The 2017 Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids has two course options: 14.6 km and 4.8 km. The shorter, more scenic course is now available to allow those participants who do not feel comfortable running or jogging the longer distance but wish to be involved in the event and raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

HYPOACTIVE SOCIAL RUN/WALK/RIDE No 60

Fashionable and Charming: Type 1's in Williamstown

60th Anniversary - Diamonds are Forever

Our next Fun Run/Walk/Ride is all about taking in the best of this attractive township on the western side of the mouth of the great Yarra. It may be wild further west, but here it's the dependable clank of ropes on masts; the intriguing aromas from onboard BBQ's; and the company of wild seabirds more travelled than most Williamstown sailors, who are generally more wealthy than weatherworn.

When you have Type 1, Life's a Beach

Our February fun get-together is at the iconic and beautiful beach at Brighton. Affluent and hopefully salubrious, Brighton Beach can be enjoyed by everyone and is the perfect place for some Sunday morning exercise. There are kilometres of running, walking and cycling paths that wind their way through palm trees, gardens and open lawns. It's one of Melbourne's loveliest spots and there's nowhere quite like the beach to have fun in the middle of summer.

Start the Year with a Whole Lot of Fun

Event Date: 29th January 2017

Studley Park is quite possibly the best location for HypoActive Fun Run/Walk/Rides. It's truly picturesque, so close to the city, yet with all the looks and ambience of deep bush. It's a lovely spot. It has numerous and diverse paths and tracks, so type 1 exercisers can choose precisely how much of the puffy stuff they want to take on and whether they want a warm wooded workout or a rigorous riverside run.

And End of Year HypoActive BBQ Brunch

Kevin Bartlett Reserve

The final Fun Run/Walk/Ride of the year promises, as always, to be a festive and grand get-together. Kevin Bartlett Reserve is both scenic and central, urban and a little wild. It's the perfect place to join other type 1's for a strenuous workout, a relaxing aerobic event, or just to catch up and chew the lipids over some gourmet diabetic food. Because this is also our annual Christmas BBQ Brunch. Once again John and Kerri Thompson have moved mountains to organise the HypoActive end of year feed.
