On another glorious Saturday morning, five goodgymers got their red t-shirts on and helped two parkruns happen for the hundreds of people who took part. Miriam, Jacqueline, Louise and Ryan took on various roles at Edgbaston Reservoir, as they had a good hundred or more runners on the day due to neighbouring Cannon Hill being cancelled this week. John set up the course at Perry Hall, but only got a chance to photograph the event sign rather than happy volunteer faces, where the nearby Sandwell Valley parkrun was cancelled due to UB40 playing (hence the pun), but happily had a limited effect on numbers.
