What if it is raining or the weather is poor?

Please note, there will always be an instructor at all Active Launceston sessions.

If the instructor feels that the weather won't compromise the safety of the participants, they will continue to deliver the session. For example, there will sometimes be a covered area such as a rotunda or an indoor space available so the instructors can adapt to the weather.

We recommend bringing warm, and if possible, wet weather clothing to ongoing sessions just in case.
