Night of the 10k PB's 2018
Catch up with all the action from the hottest 10k running event of the year
Tonight was our Commonwealth Games themed run. It involved running around having pictures with Perry and of course meeting the iconic bull from the opening ceremony.
We set off up to Brindley Place, then across to Centenary Square were the bull is and the BBC studio, then headed to the big screen fanzone in front of the town hall, we had plenty of pictures, followed by a run along the canal back to 1000 Trades.
Tonight's task was to litter pick in the cemetry, followed by hills then back in time to watch the women's Euros Semi final.
We set off to the cemetry, got plenty of litter picked, before dropping our litter pickers off ready for 10 minutes of Kenyan hills.
The Kenyan hills were tough, running hard up, then relaxed on the way down, so 10 minutes of hard graft. Then we looped around the Jewellery Quarter for 5k in total. Back in plenty of time for the footie! The Commonwealth Games is certainly coming home, lets just hope the women bring the Euros home aswell :)
This will be a run with some litter picking either on the canals or around the city as litter is likely to have built up during the Commonwealth Games.
As we will be right in the middle of the Commonwealth Games this will be a games themed group run.
The task is to run around the city and find as many of the mascot (Perry) as possible, taking plenty of pictures!
While we are doing this we’ll be handing out leaflets to the general public, passing on the good word of GoodGym :)
A litter pick on the Canal for the Canal and River Trust followed by hopefully watching England's Women in the Euro 2022 Quarter final!
We will be back on the canal this week. It will involve meeting at 1000 Trades in the upstairs room, before running out onto the Canal to complete a litter pick, before a fitness session.
After this we will aim to be back a 1000 Trades for the England Womens Euros 2022 Semi final! Please feel free just to join this part if you can't make the run :)
Walkers are welcome to join and you can set off to the canal just before the runners.
Everyone is welcome, remember nobody is left behind.
Tonight's run was a litter pick on the canal. We headed down to the canal with Jonny, Morwenna and Eve running and Amy and Miriam walking.
Soon enough Miriam and Amy found a shoe and a sock, hence the pun!
We filled two bags full of rubbish, followed by a walk up to Aston Lock to drop our bags off.
After a few pics we all headed back to 1000 Trades, some walking and some running.
Once back it was time to watch the England women in the Euros Quarter final!
