21 Group runners and 23 social superstars rounded off Hackney’s 51st and final Group Run of the year! While Toyin hit 💯

GoodGym first timer Millie know how to pick a top session for her first!! Hope you enjoyed the night as much as me!

Going down as one of the best Group runs in GG history!! We have a milestone, great group, dressing up, physical task that we completed in nick of time, 23 person social, glorious Pizza and out of this world cake!!!

Congratulations to Toyin for joining the 💯 club and the new fresh milestone T-Shirt will be winging its way to you very soon!! Amazing dedication, hard work, positivity, smiles and cakes has literally been the Hackney’s Fuel this year in particular!! Thank you x

Off to the task on a little loop after a delayed start. Arriving at Wilton with a big job to complete we split into 2 groups and got to work like elves in the night!

Weeding, trimming, potato harvesting to the Max!! Filling up tonne bag after bag to release the garden to get to Spring glory! The mulch madness got under way at a steady controlled pace before we got gathered extra energy, power with multiple backs (apparently) this back switching super power gave the barrow runners the fuel to run and tip at an all time rate so the raking crew could do their spreading thing and somehow re mulching the whole garden in the nick of time!!

All bags dragged away and tools tidied the smell of Christmas Pizza was calling strong so we dashed back to base grabbed our bags and picked up some reinforcements for our Christmas Party!!

With numbers at an all time social high amazing to have you all along for a lot of Pizza and cake fun!! Cake was eaten well into the night and the only discontent was the argument of which of the most amazing homemade cakes was the favourite! The quadruple chocolate Profiteer roles won for me!! Unbelievable!!

Thank you all and everyone who has run with Hackney for a magical year of GG fun and games!! Have an amazing Christmas and New Year, look forward to hearing all about it on the 7th of January!!

Merry Christmas
