It was our ho ho ho honour to takeover the 41st Swindon virtual parkrun - and our first Christmas parkrun πŸŽ…πŸŽ…

As well as the big man in red, the red shirts of GoodGym were out and about, pacing, tailwalking and marshalling and making an early claim for the 2021 nice list πŸ˜‡ Thank you all - you are all tree-mendous Christmas stars πŸŽ„πŸŒŸ

112 runners and walkers were present 🎁 and together this year 508 runners have completed a total of 5,760 total runs - that's a total distance of 28800km. But more than that, we've built a wonderful, friendly and supportive community. We may pine for real life parkrun, but we definitely have the next best thing. Christmas had us feeling all santa-mental so we had a lovely photo walk down memory lane, thanks to Tracey β™₯οΈπŸ–€

2020 virtual parkrun is all wrapped up now...the next time we meet it will be 2021. Keep those fingers and toes crossed for a brighter and better new year 🀞🀞
