12 runners ran 6.0km to help the Oasis Foundry School in Birmingham.
- Tuesday, 19th of November 2019

We welcomed Jaime and Tom to GoodGym for the first time tonight, it was pretty cold, well actually it was freezing, so weather wise they didn’t exactly get a warm welcome, but metaphorically they of course did!
Liam in just his shorts and T-shirt (very brave!) did the front marking job and David did the back. We set off on the 2.5k ish run too our task destination, on arrival we were greeted by Megan, who gave us our instructions. Tonight’s task was scooping up Al Pacca poo into a wheelbarrow and a litter pick. Myself (yep I joined in!) did the pooper scooping along with Chloe, Jaime and Tom, with the rest of the team litter picking. Once we had scooped up enough poop in torch light we had a few pictures, then it was time to get running again. It certainly wasn’t a night to be stood around!
We headed back to 1000 Trades, covering around 6k total distance, so along with our task it was a good nights work. I’m sure everyone was quite keen to get into the warmth when we had finished!
Next week we will be out doing good again, it would be great if you could join us sign up here.
