15 runners ran 5.8km to help the St Marks community centre in Bath.
Nice to have it a bit cooler this week for our 6k run to Peter Pan Pre-School to finish painting the fence before the end of term and whilst the weather is good, 15 runners came along for this task with Lucy and Emma set to meet us in Royal Victoria Park on route and Tim at the task.
A few announcements before we set off tonight with a shout out to Pascale who ran the Tenby Marathon at the weekend… Well Done!
The run out took us up around Royal Victoria Park where our lovely mum to be was waiting to join us for the remainder of the run to our task destination at Peter Pan, David was organised as ever waiting with brushes and containers to pour the fence stain into, we tackled the job in two teams to get both sides covered and this actually gave the group a great opportunity to chat away whilst getting the job done.
Time up and job done
We ran back the way we came with a few people peeling off to go straight home on the way but the rest of us arrived back at the leisure centre for a good old chit chat about the evening and tonight`s pun vote and what a tongue twister from Pascale.
You are all amazing people to spend an evening volunteering with at Goodgym Bath
A reminder that The Two Tunnels series is coming up on August 19th, so why not enter and run the coolest race in Bath http://www.relishrunningraces.com/bath-two-tunnels-railway-running-races.php
If you don`t fancy taking on the challenge then have a go at Bath Skyline Parkrun, a free timed 5k run every Saturday morning, worth getting up for the views alone http://www.parkrun.org.uk/bathskyline/
Social drinks after next weeks group run.. Cheers 🍻

I started running at 34 & not looked back running from 5k to Ultra. I enjoy seeing people achieve their goals.
Know a community organisation who needs help?
If you're a community organisation and have a physical task then we'd like to help.
