A trio of goodgymers helped out at the CRUK Race for Life event this weekend.

There was talk of starter canons, flag waving and launching freebies at the participants, but those tasks were sacrificed for a chance to run the 10k route.

We helped prep medals before the run, zipped round the 10k then handed out medals, snacks and water to the 10k and 5k participants.

Particular highlights included dogs earning medals, a lady doing the 5k pushing a buggy containing 4 rabbits (she runs a rabbit rescue charity) and a good number of T-Rex costumes.

The Oxford event raised a whopping £188,000!

A special round of applause and shiny gold star to Anna who marked her 4 year anniversary of running EVERY DAY with the 10k. An ATHLETE.
