Race Team Report:

Well what can I say, it appears GoodGym Race team members love to race. So October may be starting to get chilly and the nights are coming in but true to form GoodGymers love a fast foot shuffle. All the way from 5 km to some mega Ultras have been ran. We are not only runners we are also keen tourists with a races ranging from Luton all the way to the Big U.S.A. Big pat on the back to Stephen Corry and to Ben Parks who decided to do two marathons in October…crumbs. Congratulations to Becky Greenwood winning the West Mercia Police Trophy at the Longmynd Hike.

Looks like #RedThunder was present in loads of locations, notable shout outs to Bournemouth Marathon festival, Met League Claybury XC, York 10 miler and Oxford Half being well represented, cracking stuff
