  2. Hello, found this page & love it. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. Another great run is the Round the River from Lindisfarne to Howrah to be held on Sunday 13th April this year. I did this one last year for the first time and it is a very picturesque 10k run around walking tracks and along beaches. Hope to see you at a run soon. Cheers, Christine.

  3. We are an Australian sports bra business called Sixty4. We develop our own bras. We do lots of running events…is there a running event in T
    asmania that would work for us?

      • Hello Margot 🙂 I’m sure there would be. The Women’s 5k is an obvious one. City to Casino is a larger event – I’d have a talk to the Tasmanian Road Runners or the Tasmanian Sporting Events who organise the Women’s 5k amongst other events in the state 🙂 Good luck! (Links to events and organisations are above).

  7. Hi I wondered if u know when lilydale lope is in 2016 . I’m from victoria but my 80 yr old mum is a tasi tiger from lilydale many years ago . Lots of my relos still live there . I have tried googling it but can’t find it . Thanks if u can help

    • Hello Rose, thanks for the message, sounds like this event would be special for you to run 🙂 It’s a lovely course, hilly but beautiful and scenic. Lilydale Lope is a run that the Launceston Running Club puts on as part of their calendar. The Club runs from March through to September usually. The calendar of events isn’t out yet. If you look up Launceston Running Club and keep an eye on their site you’ll be able to find out as soon as it’s published. The AGM isn’t until end of January, beginning of February so I’d think the calendar will come out shortly after that. To run this event runners must become members of the Club but that’s not difficult or expensive, it’s also a handicapped event so you’ll be asked your 5km and 10km PBs. We’re a very friendly bunch and it would be great to meet you. I hope I’ve run this event twice but didn’t get there last year due to other commitments. I hope that helps. If you’d like to ask anything else please do!
