Get out and get ac­tive

Shepparton News - - WHAT WE LOVE -

If it’s Åt­ness you’re look­ing for in Shep­par­ton this week­end, you’re in luck.

To­day you can join a qual­iÅed Aquamoves gym and group Åt­ness in­struc­tor for a free Out­door Fit­ness Equip­ment Cir­cuit ses­sion from 9 am to 10 am.

The ses­sion is aimed at par­tic­i­pants aged 13 and above. Regis­tra­tion can be com­pleted on the day, and re­mem­ber to wear com­fort­able cloth­ing, bring a drink bot­tle and be sun smart.

The ses­sion will take place at the new out­door Åt­ness equip­ment at Vic­to­ria Park Lake’s West­ern Park, which in­cludes seated push and pull, situp bench, leg press and swing board, row­ing ma­chine and a sky run­ner/el­lip­ti­cal trainer.

There will be an­other chance to get out­side and get ac­tive to­day in Tatura from 1 pm to 2.30 pm. An ori­en­teer­ing ex­pe­di­tion will be­gin at Mac­tier Gar­dens in Ho­gan St, Tatura. Use a map to Ånd check­points in the Tatura land­scape.

No prior ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary — just a sense of ad­ven­ture. The ac­tiv­ity is geared at chil­dren aged 0–4 years and 5–12 years. Regis­tra­tion for the free event can be made on the day.

To­mor­row sees the huge Chal­lenge Shep­par­ton event take place at Vic­to­ria Park Lake in Shep­par­ton, which is free for spec­ta­tors. You can head down to the lake and catch the ac­tion which in­cludes run­ners cross­ing the Ånish­ing line through­out the day. Events kick off at 6 am and run un­til 3 pm. En­chanted Rain­bow will con­duct an Old School Yard Games ses­sion from 9 am to 10.30 am at the Shep­par­ton East Pri­mary School oval to­mor­row.

The event is free and is geared at var­i­ous age groups right up to 18 years and over. En­joy hop­scotch, elas­tics, skip­ping, hoop­ing and much more.

Why not get out into na­ture to­mor­row with an evening pho­tog­ra­phy ses­sion at Reedy Swamp from 6 pm to 8 pm?

RiverCon­nect and the Shep­par­ton Cam­era Club will con­duct the ses­sion, which is free but par­tic­i­pants must bring their own cam­era.

The ses­sion is suit­able for those aged 13–17 years and 18 years and over.
