GOODGYM COVENTRY HELP CYRENIANS JANUARY 2019

 

Report written by Liz Pharoah (Goodgym Leader)

19 GoodGym Coventry runners relocated to the Council House and ran 5km to support the work of the Cyrenians in Coventry.

This evening started off a little differently at the Council House, where it was great to meet JackKaren and Pacharo who had come with us for the first time.

We set off to find our start location on The Martyr's close (Historical information here ), some runners opting for a slightly more scenic route , teams were given roads and quickly set off to deliver their bags. And we finished up a big hill, where at the top Meera tried to make friends with a local cat.

 

 

In no time at all, 400 bags were delivered on a route that took in a few hills. As this was not enough hills for our intrepid runners we set off to find some more hills on Puma Way (with all the sights and sounds of locals and the wildlife) to support our efforts.

We returned to the Council House, stretched and made plans for the next week. Next week, should see some 50 run celebrations as well as post-run drinks to say farewell to Brogan as she sets off on her travels. Will be great to see you then. Liz x
