This past Saturday, 13 GoodGym runners met up at a new, top secret location to help with a run through (ha!) of a new ParkRun in Cardiff. Before it is launched, any new ParkRun needs to be tested out - the route, the timings, the scanning, the marshaling points etc. And this was our big chance to support the race directors and other volunteers in getting everything just right for the start day. And all at a secret new location - exciting!

Using the Three Word app (plus nearest postcode), we navigated our way to the race location. Kitted up with highviz vests, lanyards, and any additional tools we needed (mainly our own phones loaded with the ParkRun Volunteer app), we spent an incredibly enjoyable hour helping out and watching the runners race by. All the runners finished in the top 20, too ;-)

Tremendous fun! More for us, please!
