Whilst much of GoodGym was in Sofia, GoodGym Bristol wanted to do something a little different for a community mission, and support the wider Bristol running community, the GoodGym community and Sean of GoodGym York's excellent concept of the Ribbon run.

So we decided to setup and marshal an ribbon route, and invite everyone to come and run it with a Facebook event setup and we waited to see who would come.

We managed to get two non-GoodGymers to come and even John from GoodGym Camden to come across for the day. It was great to see you all.

As for the marshals, you were all brilliant and everyone managed to get around the course setting the impressive ribbon (in 2D as Alice termed it) around the Downs, and then we swapped runners and marshals, for a marshals run, so everyone could earn their medal and good deed. It was also nice to met Meg on her first GoodGym deed and Jenny on her first Saturday Good Deed, so welcome to Saturdays.

After all the running and marshalling we retired to the Cafe, and reflected on a challenge achieve, and also on how nice the Downs were, with a number of people deciding to run there more often, and explore it more as opposed to just completing a lap of the outside.
