Water fun morning at the Easter Ten mile 6 water station! I was joined by GoodGymers Sheila, Kate, Georgeta, Kelley, and Rosie.

My family also came along, with the under 18 year olds volunteering as part of Maidenhead Athletic Club rather than as GoodGymers.

There is some debate as to whether the rubber duck was with GoodGym or MAC. Maybe both?

After a stormy night we expected a wet morning but the sun came out and spirits were far from damp. We set up our bunting and GoodGym signs to brighten up our lay-by, poured water into hundreds of cups and then waited eagerly for the first runners to come through.

The elites set a mind blowing 5 minute mile pace. No time for them to stop for water but we gave them a big cheer.

Gradually more and more runners did take up our offers of hydration though and we were kept busy handing out cups and kudos.

It was great to see lots of familiar faces running by including GoodGymer Sophie, a couple of GoodGym T-Shirts from other areas, some MAC members and the super pacers, wearing the bibs we made last week.

The young MAC volunteers did a great job collecting discarded cups, and the duck did some cheering too.

Thanks to Kelley, who had her fancy camera and took most of these photographs.

GoodGymer Gillian also helped at a water station with the Running Sisters and has submitted her own report.

Well done GoodGym and thanks to Run Director Jen and all of MAC for welcoming us to this brilliant community event. Can't wait for next year! Happy Easter everyone!
