Charge of the Bright Brigade
14 GoodGymers made their way to help the ODP parkrun in Richmond.
- Saturday, 26th of November 2022
A beautiful autumnal morning to spend out in Old Deer Park in Richmond taking on marshalling duties for ParkRun. Excitingly, five members from GoodGym Oxford joined in the running fun too as part of their ParkRun tour. It made for a lot of GoodGymers in one place!
The team showed up ready to encourage runners and walkers around the route, taking on timing duties, way pointing, walking, tail marking and enthusiastic encouragement!
Rebecca is a regular there and kindly helped to organise the task, ensuring Area Activator Liz had chance to speak to the group about GoodGym before they set off. Hopefully we will be able to welcome some regular ParkRunners for a session with us soon too.
Three stunning laps around the park later, including some musical accompaniment from a man practicing the saxophone in the park, everyone had finished.
After the run, everyone headed for coffee, cake and chat, a perfect end to the start of the weekend!
