Autumn may have fallen in Bath but that didn't stop 10 fabulous runners from putting their best football feet forward for a 5k run out for a spot of leaflet dropping for Bath City football club ahead of their annual community day on 21st October. The club is community owned so don't miss out on this fun packed day for all the family.

Welcome to Rosie and Joe joining us for their first taste of Goodgym.

Three cheers to Mary and Rosie on completing their first marathon in Bournemouth on Sunday. Well done to Pascale on another marathon in the bag ahead of The Eden project Marathon this weekend... GO GIRL!!

These speedy guys soon had 200 leaflets posted to promote Bath City football clubs community day. This is going to be a fun packed day for all the family and will raise vital funds for the community led football club, make sure you spread the word and go along on the day.

Time for task two

With the leaflets well and truly posted we had time left to shift some bark chip at the foot of some community allotments on a very slippery grass pathway,

The team certainly worked hard tonight bagging up the bark chips and shifting them along a length of muddy ground at the bottom of the community allotments. A bit of OCD with the variation in bark shade along the stretch of path but all was made very clear when Katie and Rosie spilled the beans on newbie Joe bagging up the lighter bark because it weighed less...HA!! they certainly marked his card.

Great to hear everyone enjoying themselves whilst getting fit and doing good tonight helping out two great community led projects.


Run back to the leisure centre for a well earned stretch out and reminder to bring your documents along to your next group run and get mission verified.

Thanks to Emma for back marking and Joe for a Barking mad pun

Well done you crazy bunch
