I’m rather enjoying this volunteering lark :)
Well done to the Goodgym members who tackled the wind for a flyering time in Whiteway.
We delivered leaflets on behalf of AgeUk to notify the residents of the services provided during this difficult time.
Picture taken post flyering enjoying the view over the city.
Meet at the junction between Kelston Way and East Way.
It is imperative especially during lockdown that the elderly residents are Bath are aware of the services that can be provided by Age UK
The last delivery of leaflets had a very positive response and Age UK would like us to deliver more this month.
The area covered will be in the Whiteway area of Bath. Here are the roads:
*Kelston view *North Way *St Michaels road *East Way *East Close *West Close *Haycombe Drive *Windrush Close *Rosewarn Close *Blagdon Park
I will hand out the leaflets at the starting locations and we will head off individually to deliver the leaflets.
During the current lockdown, Team #GoodgymRedThunder will be hosting a weekly Adventure Film Watch Party- an opportunity to watch these great free-to-air documentaries together! During these uncertain times, sometimes we need a bit of inspiration to get us out the door and finding our own adventures!
Unbreakable: The Western States 100
Unbreakable: The Western States 100 follows the four lead men on this amazing journey. Hal Koerner, two time defending Western States champion, and running store entrepreneur from Ashland, Oregon. Geoff Roes, undefeated at the 100-mile distance, an organic chef from Juneau, Alaska. Anton Krupicka, undefeated in every ultramarathon he has ever started, a graduate student living in Boulder, Colorado. Kilian Jornet, the young mountain runner and two time Ultra-trail du Mont-Blanc champion, from Spain.
While their lives may be quite different, the goal is the same: win the Western States 100-mile run. A win will require breaking the course record and running the fastest time in the history of the race. An epic showdown ensues, from Squaw Valley, CA in Lake Tahoe, up though the high snow covered Sierra Nevada Mountains, down through the extreme heat of the American River Canyons and finishing in Auburn, CA.
Though all four are undefeated, three must break and only one can remain Unbreakable.
