All Hail The Trail 🙌

Report written by Char Binns

It was so nice to be back running in a team this week!

On a sunny evening, a group of 13 runners and walkers gathered in my favourite Liverpool park for a session I'd named 'Trail Running 101'. As city dwellers, we don't really have proper trails and Liverpool really lacks hills, but as a fun introduction to non-road running, the lap around the outside of Calderstones Park offers a taste of what fun trail running can be.

A huge GoodGym welcome to lots of newbies including Sean, Natasha and Kate.

As well as a few folks who have only joined in the last few weeks. It is fabulous to see ever more people joining the GoodGym Liverpool crew and having fun, getting fit and doing good together, even in these challenging times.

It was of course, also a great pleasure for me to catch-up with many of the long-standing GoodGym family and to meet new Area Activator Ema properly, following a good few online chats :)

We set off around the trail taking it steady, with everyone chatting away and comfortably completing the first 3km(ish) loop. Those who still had plenty of energy went for a second loop and challenged themselves to run a little fast this time, especially on my favourite downhill section.

Everyone did an amazing job and I'd love to run with you all again. Talking of... there are still 3 places left for my Trail Run: Intermediate Session next month. If you're ready for challenge, make sure you sign-up here.

Happy running!
