It is our LAST group activity of the month, for some the end of the January Challenge but not the end of the Llion. No, it was the 100th deed for Llion and time to enjoy the celebration

We met as usual outside the Sport Wales National Centre in Sophia Gardens at 18:30, we were going in two groups - the walk / joggers and the runners. However, as a one off and to keep everyone active we warmed up with a 1-mile jog for all.

After this we split into our two groups and made our ways up different sides of the road of Western Avenue, plogging as we went. It was a busy road and there was plenty to pick up as we proudly displayed our goodgym colours.

After a couple of km of plogging we popped our bags at a bin and took a quick photo, and then we were led of a magic mystery run. We were certainly getting in the run tonight in our group, as the walkers continued to plog their side of the road. We don't usually get to run on this side of Cardiff, so Michael was determined to make the most of it and get goodgym seen as much as possible.

We got together again, bags a ready......and PLOG on.

A lap of a park, the gabalfa interchange and we crossed sides over to the run back down the walkers side of the road. We dropped our bags, one last time, a total of 10 bags of rubbish from the surrounding areas of North (ish) Cardiff.

A good run back for our final group photo and a stretch out after a nice run tonight - 7.5 km for the runners.

Join us on Sunday for our final Junior Parkrun or at Oasis for the Big Birdwatch before we take a break (from junior parkrun) for a couple of weeks after the manic January Challenge.
