The temperature dipped below zero as we started our run, but with a hilly start we managed to keep warm using muscle power!

We were setting off on a circuit of some of Luton's parks, updating the noticeboards by removing outdated posters and adding new information and a shiny GoodGym poster!

At the top of the hill we hit Memorial Park first, and set to work there cleaning out the old notices while the crack team of Duncan Sam and Lizzy went off on an excursion to nearly Kidney Wood.

Reuniting in Stockwood Park we got a quick photo with an owl 🦉, sorted out the next noticeboard and then pressed on back down Farley Hill and into Brantwood Park. Two noticeboards here and a stop for an out-and-back sprint session and some tricep dips.

The final leg took us back through the town centre to Manor Park, three noticeboards there and we were done, short hop back to the University for quick stretches and goodbyes before the hard frost got us!
