The first GoodGym (not)parkrun saw an amazing 76 GoodGym runners across the UK take part. Hopefully that total was broken on week 2.

IMPRESSIVE effort from all across the country with some very impressive finds! Well done to everyone who got out there for their daily exercise and helped their local area by making it a nicer place for a walk!
I'm not gonna lie, I've failed to decided on the winners as I think you all deserve a medal for doing good on your walk, so many people just walk past the rubbish but you actually picked it up on your Sunday Walk! high five to all
However, there were some fantastic (and sometimes gross) finds that are worth a mention me thinks:
Not only Lucy R found ski-goggles, she also got a shout out on BBC6 radio for litter picking in Exeter! A celebrity!:)
Dharmesh was unfortunate enough to find a pee sample.... Sorry buddy!
Peter once again found some condom wrappers, I'm really starting to wonder where he does his litter-picking! he he :)
Ceiling was very creative on her litter picking adventure by using her bike as a wheely bin of sorts, meaning she can use the biggest bag there is to pick a lot of litter quickly! Genius!
Jess made her local park a much nicer place and in the process found a toy walkie talkie!
Jo managed to a variety of sports balls that included a golf ball and a tennis ball and possibly a piece of a broken surfboard!
Jo managed to find a shoe but only one, wonder where the other shoe dropped.... I know I know lol
Sara managed to find a cat carrier, thankfully with no cats inside!!!
Jeanette definitely deserves a medal for most bags collectd - 6 bags of rubbish!!!
Remy managed to multi-task by litter picking and dog walking with tow bags in one hand! That's what I call a dedication!
Lauren gets a in-action litter picker badge by picking up CO2 cannisters as they were thrown by some unpleasant litter tossers at a roundabout - well done! She also found a pram!!!
I hope I mentioned everyone who provided the details, it's been so lovely to read about your litter picking - you've just been super heroes for doing this on your Sunday walk! Keep it going:)
