The aim of the Women’s TRY-athlon and Fun Run/Walk is to give women an achievable health and fitness event that is inclusive, encouraging, positive, non-threatening and fun. Held every year during November in Stanley Tasmania the TRY-athlon distances are a 200m swim, a 6km bike ride and a 2km run. The TRY-athlon can be completed as an individual or as a team. There is also the option of completing only the fun run/walk (6km or 2km option). Our aim is to provide the women of Tasmania a training goal. This will help to improve their health and fitness and for them to form new, permanent and sustainable habits, which in turn would have positive impacts on families and communities of Tasmania. We will provide group support and accountability structures that will carry on after the TRY-athlon. There will also be on-going online support through our website and social media to reach isolated women or women that can’t access the training.
This award winning event has been running since November 2015 and is open to all women 16 years and older.
2016 - Winners of a Tasmanian Community Award
Get Moving Tasmania Physical Activity Award
Being physically active on a regular basis creates a wide range of benefits for individuals and the communities in which they live.
The Get Moving Tasmania Physical Activity Award acknowledges the important role not-for-profit community organisations play in promoting and providing opportunities for physical activity.
Physically active communities are inclusive, healthier and happier. Regular physical activity is a major contributing factor in preventing a number of chronic diseases and can benefit both physical and mental health.
The Get Moving Tasmania Physical Activity Award recognises programs, services and projects that increase, improve or provide physical activity participation opportunities in communities. (Add video and photos)
