You can do just an hour if you want, missions are being set up so please sign up but also let Susie (susie.nankivell@interact.org.uk) know directly that you will be attending so she can book you in.

Next weeks group run - This is a singing run! We will be going to the Cathedral where Mencap have their annual Christmas Carol service (bring a donation) We will set off from the UNI about 7pm but if anyone would like an easy 5k beforehand then meet at 6:30pm and I will take you on a route. If not, meet at 7pm to walk over to the Cathedral.

Santa Fun Run Set up - This is a Mission event on Sunday morning 8th December with a meet in Central Park at 06:45am to help set up the event, if you want to help break down the event later in the morning, just let me know. (gerry@goodgym.org) You can also sign up to run its about 5k and costs £12 including a Santa Suit butyou need to do this by Monday 2nd December.

No Group runs over the Xmas/New Year period, last group run this year will be the 18th December.

Tonights group run was leafleting for Kids Inspire around the Old Moulsham area. We set off from the Uni doing some warm up exercises and taking our usual route to the high street, to really get the heart rate up we did a caterpillar run for about 300m until a photo opportunity presented itself with a giant bauble that everyone could get inside!

Kids Inspire awarded us their prestigious "Volunteers of the Month" award, thankyou!

After the leafleting was done we headed to Bell Meadow to do a few effort sessions. First up was to split into pairs of fast and slow runners, then heading off in different directions on a 400m loop you meet your partner and hi-fived then headed back the way you came. We did this twice and to finish a handicap race of about 300m with the slowest heading off first with the fastest last chasing down to the finish.

A lot of heavy breathing ensued meaning everyone put in an effort, well done.

Back to the Uni for a stretch down.
