Spring is the time when the weather starts to heat up and we squeeze into our swimsuits. Now’s the time you feel every winter treat you spoilt yourself with.

Byron Bay Runners, our local not-for-profit group of running nuts, have found a fun solution to help you stay trim and healthy. They are running a drop-in Get Fit for Summer session on Tuesdays at Clarkes Beach. Aimed at all levels of fitness, it’s a great way to get fit in a friendly, social environment.

The session starts at Clarkes Beach Car Park at 6pm. Everyone is welcome; just drop in for a jog and a bit of core work on the beach. You’ll get some great views of the sunset over the Bay as well.

Social membership is all you need, which is just $20 for the year, a bargain for some of the best coaching on the coast.

The aim is to improve your fitness, have fun and meet a lovely bunch of people. Find more info at: www.byronbayrunners.com or 0423 336 960.
