It was a lovely autumn day for the final RNLI 10k and Pieces of 8 races. The races both went well with lots of happy runners.

Ami & Rosie did sterling work on the registration, set up and finish. Angela and I had the furthest road closure and Vicki & John came from the utopia of junior parkrun to the purgatory of the Fort Cumberland car park and route split.

Unfortunately the sun wasn't shining for the motorists who were mostly very "dissatisfied" with the fact that there were road closures and decided to express their dissatisfaction to our GoodGym marshals. Let's just say, none of those people will be joining GoodGym soon, they were definitely BadGym.

One of the reasons the race is no longer going to happen in this location is the issues around the road closures, it's disappointing that 2 hours of road closures seems to be so intolerable to a handful of people.

Let's just keep on being good role models and reminding people how to be kind, smile and stay calm. Every GoodGymer did a great job of that. 👍

Also congrats to Tony H who came 8th in the RNLI 10k in 42 minutes. He then also did some impromptu marshaling to deter the angry drivers.
