💦 What a splashing time 💦
14 GoodGymers made their way to help the Run for All in York.

14 brilliant GoodGymmers, accompanied by a brilliant dog and child, took on our annual task of running the mile 3 water station for the Yorkshire marathon and 10 mile race.
It’s always a lovely day and this was no exception. The sun was shining, though the temperature was a tad chilly.
We gathered bright and early and started unscrewing the lids of MANY bottles of water. Some people had special (mostly gardening) gloves, whilst others were lucky enough to use a special tool (until it got broken...) Either way, many bottles were opened, and blisters gained in the process.
It was soon time for the race to commence so we looked keenly for the first participant, with various people vying to be the one to give out the first bottle.
With a blurry flurry of runners, that was the marathon done. It was then time to get ready for the 10- mile race. Time for more bottle cap- unscrewing (and more blisters) before the next team ran through.
We were thrilled to spot some GGs in both the marathon and 10-mile races and gave them some extra-loud cheers (along with cheering everyone else of course).
A similar battle ensued as to who could give the last bottle out and with that accomplished, it was time to pack up and head to the Govers' for some much-needed warmth, tea and cake.
Thank you everyone, and a huge well done to all the runners too - what a bunch of heroes!
