Harvey and the post box challenge
"Goodgym warms your heart"
Today's task is bought to you by the amazing Ealing Half Marathon. They needed our help putting up some very important sings along the route for the race that's happening this Sunday!
As they are a CIC all the profit from the event goes into our local community. It's such an important community event and I'm so glad we could be a small part of it coming together.
It was a beautifully sunny day for a walk around the course the runners will be following this weekend and with a few problem solving situations along the way it was a great workout for the mind as well as the legs!
We were also joined by Daniel for his very first GoodGym outting.
He said 'I was happy to learn more about ongoing event and looking forward to more missions!'
This week at our regular Achilles International group run session in Green Park, we were able to celebrate a weekend of successful running exploits at the Bristol 10km (VI edition). London group founder Chris and speedy runner Naqi had an amazing time running with almost 40 other VI competitors on the closed road course.
4 Goodgym runners joined us this time (Simon, Emily, Katy and first timer Harvey- welcome!), to assist Richard, Naqi, Tom and Chris with their running objectives around our 1.2 mile pedestrianised loop of Green Park. Katy and Harvey got stuck in with shadowing Tom for his 10km loop, while Simon helped Naqi with his workout, with Lucy (keen running volunteer) on hand to help.
We lucked out with the weather this evening (Richard and Naqi both commented that they would be hoping for these conditions for their upcoming London Marathon attempts- good luck guys!).
Well done everyone. We will be back again, same time, next week for more VI guiding fun!
Fancy an evening of spooky running in North London?
Area Activator Simon will be leading an approximate 10km run through Hampstead Heath, starting and finishing at the Bull and Gate pub in Kentish Town.
Running in the darkness of night is a wonderful experience, and really good fun with running friends. This is a social run, so do not expect to be running any PBs tonight!
All paces and abilities welcome, as long as you can run comfortably and consistently for 40 minutes.
A GPX file for the route wi be posted here once it has been created, for those who would like to follow along.
Headtorch required! And trail shoes recommended!
Afterwards, we will enjoy some refreshments at the Bull and Gate pub.
Halloween costumes not required, but fully encouraged!
