Last night's group run saw 6 fabulous GoodGymers attend to hand deliver leaflets for Stockport Libraries, pacing the residential areas of Brinnington on a crisp dry night.

Stockport Libraries are trying to encourage local residents to make use of the incredible facilities that Brinnington Library has to offer. From toddler story time to a chatty cafe to ancestry tracing and the standard book checkout service, it really does have it all.

We were lucky enough to welcome our very own task owner, Jenni, on the task - to light the way with her knowledge of the local area and join us for her very first GoodGym run!

Massive shout out to Jo, who absolutely smashed her first GoodGym session - we hope to see you at many more to come! ☺️

To add to GoodGym mix, our resident GoodGym central team member and Sheffield residents, Yusra, travelled across the Pennines to clock up those miles for the January Challenge... and ran until the bitter end, making sure she finished with a round 5km mileage!

Our 5km run took us to a gleaming maze of new-brick houses, and the destination for our leaflet drop. Like little mice, we scurried and posted from door to door... meeting a few residents along the way and spreading the word.

To celebrate the end our run, we had a mini celebration parade to award Rob a well deserved medal for kindly (daftly?) taking on a chunk of our area activators miles in the Run Up To Christmas.

Tuesday, we smashed it mate! 💪

It was great meeting you all, and for the record I only needed to trot back to my car to round up to 5K lol
