About the Albert Park MS Walk and Fun Run

Every year on the first Sunday in June, thousands of people come together in Melbourne to walk and run in support of Australians living with multiple sclerosis. Taking part in the 2013 MS Walk and Fun Run will not only improve your overall health and fitness, it will also make you feel warm inside for contributing to such a great cause. Stroll or power-walk, travel by wheelchair, pram or stroller, wear serious sports gear or wacky team costumes. Whatever you choose, you will be helping thousands of Australians who are living with multiple sclerosis.

MaxNRG-warm-up

The MS Walk and Fun Run is organised by MS Australia and our own MaxNRG Personal Training team are once again helping support the event by organising the ‘warm up’. Since the first event in 1989, MS Walk and Fun Run participants have raised millions of dollars to fund essential services and support for people living with MS.

The MS Walk and Fun Run will go ahead rain or shine. Come prepared with sunscreen, warm layered clothes and wet weather gear to ensure you have a great day no matter what the weather brings. Bring your own water bottle and a snack or two to keep your energy levels up.

Tough Mudder Melbourne

Tough Mudder Melbourne

[fb-like]

Philip Island Grand Prix Circuit, Cowes VIC
Saturday 19th January & Sunday 20th January, 2013

Known as the toughest event in the world, the Tough Mudder Event that is designed by British Special Forces comes back to Australia for a second time. After the popularity of the event last year the Tough Mudder team has continued to expand the number of events across Australia.

Are you Tough enough?

[fb-like]

What is Tough Mudder?

This is not your average running event, Tough Mudder is the ultimate test of your fitness, physical and metal capabilities. It is run over a 18-20km obstacle course and presents you with 20-25 hardcore and challenging obstacles that you and you team have to work together to get through. To complete this course you will need strength, endurance, stamina, team work and a can do attitude.

MaxNRG PT Facebook

Completing this course alone is not an option!

To get through the whole course will take a lot of teamwork. Your team will have to help you lift, push, pull and drag you through the mud, walls, drops, tunnels and all different types of obstacles that are put in front of you.

The great thing is that is not a race and a great personal challenge for you and you team, because it is so difficult getting through the event will defiantly give you a great sense of achievement which as you know will prove to you that you can get through just about anything if you put your mind to it.

Types of Obstacles

Tough Mudder likes to keep the course details a mystery until two weeks before the event in order to keep you on your toes and training for all possible challenges. You can expect a hefty dose of mud, ice, fire, and electric shocks to test whether or not you’re tough enough to earn the coveted orange headband and an ice cold beer at the finish line. Average completion time of a course is typically 3-4 hours.

Melbourne #1 2013 Sample Course Map

Possible Obstacles for the 2013 Melbourne #1 Event

[check_list]

  • Arctic Eenma – work your way through an ice bath and under wooden planks
  • Ball Shrinker – cross over icy cold water over 2 ropes and its virtually impossible to make it across without being at least half submerged
  • Boa Constrictor – Crawl through a series of wet and muddy pipes
  • Berlin Walls – Scale 12 ft walls with the help of your team
  • Everest – One of the toughest obstacles, make a quick sprint, jump and hang on and pull yourself up a half pipe
  • Mud Mile – make you way of waist deep mud, not the best one to not want to get dirty!
  • Walk the Plank – climb up to the top of a 15+ feet jump and jump into freezing cold water followed by a swim to the shore
  • Electroshock Therapy – You that’s right run through a wall of wire that pump out 10,000 volts!
