On a cold but clear days 8 Liverpool Goodgymers headed over to Delamere. Many thanks to Heetu and Liam for organising and providing lifts there and back.

Delamere Forest was hosting the Delamere 10k and half marathon trail run.

It was such a beautiful course through the woods around the lake and an absolutely amazing view in the last mile looking out on the forest we had run through. Yes the view came with a sting in the tail of a hill the length and steepness of which we just don't have in our city - kudos to Vikky, Steph and Chris for running up it.

The atmosphere was amazing - so friendly and sociable which is just like Goodgym Liverpool so we fitted right in. A hilly trail is so different to a flat road run and everyone ran well and strong - for some it was their first (of I'm sure many ) 10k , for others it was a training run for upcoming half marathons and shout out to Chris for completing the trail half in preparation for a marathon.

The support of the whole group was second to none and for anyone wanting to try out a run whether its the local parkrun, one of our social evening runs or a group run to task Id really recommend signing up and being part of the fabulousness. Several of us finished our morning with a well deserved brunch back on home turf at The Third cafe and Roz got us all thinking about future run events

Special thanks to Aditya for choosing this run and encouraging it to be listed.
