13 runners ran 5.0km to help the The Canal and River Trust in Birmingham.
- Tuesday, 16th of April 2019
- Led by Jonny Carter
We were delighted to welcome both Emma and Tatyana to GoodGym Brum for the first time. Last night was a bit of a celebration as five of our regular runners have birthday's this week, myself last night, Morwenna, George, Laura and Aidan all covering other days during the week so what better time for a GG social. But first of course was the 'do good' and 'getting fit' bit.
The group ran down the canal, armed with bags and litter picks. Once on the canal we split into three groups, each clearing a different section of the canal. Once done we all met up at Aston Lock, had a quick picture, which was kindly taken by another runner and we were on our way again. The group ran in two separate parties, one slightly faster than the other, taking in more of the canal, before arriving at Millenium Point and then heading through the town back to 1000 Trades. Yep no fitness session this week, that was replaced by some arm curls with pint glasses! Happy Birthday to all those GoodGymers this week I hope you have a fantastic day when it arrives!
Next week we will be out doing good again, it would be great if you could join us sign up here.
