Back to ̶B̶l̶a̶c̶k̶ RED! 🥳

Westminster Report written by Danny

After 2 long years the Asics London 10k was finally back on the streets of Westminster and as ever, GoodGym were there to provide support (and water) to the people racing.

Despite TFL seemingly taking the morning off and a very threatening weather forecast, 23 volunteers made it to Aid Station 1 on Victoria Embankment just behind Somerset House, home of GoodGym HQ. On this occasion we were distributed across several sites in fact, with 6 or so pioneers also down at Westminster Abbey helping out on Aid Station 2.

It was a cool day out so demand for water would be modest, but nonetheless the cups were carefully stacked 3 layers high along 15-odd tables ready for the runners. For the first time we also had a refilling stop for those who’d brought their own bottles.

As well as people proudly wearing their GoodGym colours, those racing included Spartans, a banana, a panda bear and a man dressed entirely in purple. 🤷‍♂️

Presumably owing to a staggered start and the mild temperature, things never got hectic on Aid Station 1 and it really wasn’t long before it was time to politely encourage the unused water cups onto the ground and start clearing everything away.

Thanks so much for coming team and helping get GoodGym out in front of some eyes! Those that volunteered on AS1 today get to enjoy a free place on an upcoming LimeLight Sports race which will be the (postponed) Hackney Half this September, the Oxford Half in October, the Hackney Half in May 2022, or the next London 10K in a years time.

Great to meet everyone this morning! Given the biblical storm over my house this afternoon, we were so lucky with the weather... 10k swim was not on the cards.
