🍁 Leaf us to it 🍂
27 runners ran 5.3km to help the Acomb primary school community garden and Holgate Community Garden in York.

🌡️On a deceptively chilly Monday evening, a group of excellent GoodGymmers met to do good (and get fit) for not one but two organisations in York.
🍂 After a warm up that involved us discussing our favourite things about autumn (who knew that leaf-catching was such a big thing in York?!), we split into two groups.
Laura led a group to Holgate Community Garden where they cleared the overgrown circle around the climbing frame of weeds and brambles. They also weeded around the small fruit trees and the very important play train, along with raking and brushing leaves and litter picking around the garden. Phew, what a productive half hour💪
🌱 Meanwhile, the rest of us headed to Acomb Primary School, via the "scenic route" (definitely deliberate, right Mitch?!) We were met there by Amanda who gave us the infamous instruction to...
*Clear everything * (except the trees and raspberries)
🍪 We didn't need telling twice, especially when we could see the biscuit-based reward that Amanda had in store for us.
🦆 We congregated at the excitingly apparently unheard of Holgate Dock for a fitness session of some classic primary school games of British Bulldog and Squat, Squat, Goose.
🏃♀️🏃♂️ We then ran back to base for stretching and the pub.
🙌🏼 Thank you everyone, looking forward to seeing you all next week, and huge good luck to the marathoners and 10 milers this weekend.
