Born in Singapore and raised in Adelaide, Bryan first moved to Melbourne to study. When a friend recommended running as a way to take his mind off stressful classes he welcomed the idea with open arms.
So much so that he agreed to do a marathon. Luckily, he quickly realized that running meant more to him than just a distraction from studying. And completing his first marathon proved it. Bryan had fallen in love.
But he found running alone, well, a little lonely. Exploring the city was an experience he wanted to share. So after joining a few running groups and seeing the benefit of having some support, he started the Glasshouse Run Club.
Melbourne is really diverse and it’s open to everybody – people of any age, background, race, religion – it doesn’t matter.
“And my run crew is exactly the same. I see running as a safe space for everyone and I want to help build a community. It’s all about being healthy and wholesome.”
Bryan’s routes – from coffee runs to scenic tours
Alright, time to get moving. We asked Bryan for his best suggestions and he didn’t disappoint. We have a 5km, 10km and 15km route for you to enjoy.
“Honestly, I could’ve easily given you 10 routes*. The choices are endless. Everywhere in Melbourne is runnable,” says Bryan.
I think these routes sum up the city well – with the parks, the sea, the bay and the river. Everywhere you go, you can see something special.
*Bryan did actually end up giving us 10 routes. So make sure to check out our Strava account where we’ve uploaded all of them for you.
