Six GoodGymers got up at the crack of dawn to help set up the annual Farleigh Santa Fun Run. We met Selina who put us to work helping unload the van, before we set off round the course putting out flags and signage to make sure the Santas didn't get lost. By the time we got back to the event village there were Santas everywhere!

Rich left us to go back to his sick bed and Andy went off to transform into Saint Nick to take part in the race. The rest of us treated ourselves to breakfast as a reward for our hard work. We bumped into Joel and Abbi en route who joined us for something to eat. While we were there we did some research ready for the quiz this evening.

Our next group run will be another lot of leaf clearing at St John's Hall, hope to see you there.
