It was a nippy one tonight as we met at Crook Log! Although low on numbers tonight, we were ready to go to our task at Adelaide Care Home.

It was great to welcome new memeber Matt we hope you enjoyed your first GoodGym run!

After a quick warm-up we split into 2 groups.

The runners


The walkers

The running group took a short, direct route to the care home to get there as soon as possible and to get stuck into the task! Meanwhile, the walkers were on the hills of the runners.

Upon arrival to the care home we were shown into the garden where our task was to empty a range of plant pots into the garden and move the empty pots to the other side of the garden.

It didn't take long before we were done and after rearranging the gnomes, we headed out and onto our second task of the evening.

We had come prepped with leaflets for the Greenwich and Bexley Hospice Santa Dash and Christmas fair and on the way back to GG Bexley HQ we flyered in and out of the houses delivering the leaflets.

After most of us had lost the feeling in our fingertips, we were back at Crook Log. We stretched and cooled down 🥶 before saying our goodbyes.

Great work tonight guys! It was definitely a cold one!

Until next week...

Happy Running!
