PrideRun10k is in it's 16th year and GoodGym went along to help.

An early start on the Saturday but worth it for a great race. With 1,200+ runners taking part there were pleeenty of goody bags to put together. A production line was set up and we were busy adding in 2 bottles, 2 bars, 4 leaflets, 1 jelly beans and 1 post it notes. (The numbers will stay in my head for a while!)

With the race approaching we had the baggage area to manage. Keeping all the bags in 7 rows of 200 was a challenge, with the runners coming quick and fast we made up the miles walking back and forth through the rows!

It was great to see so may people taking part in the race and rainbows on show everywhere you turned.
