Mr Ian Giggs has been a member of Reading Roadrunners since he was a young lad. Most of you will have met Ian as he’s a keen runner plus usually organises out Endure 24 events. He’s also now know as the International parkrun legend (IPL) as we’ve lost count of the countries and places he’s ran parkrun
Ian had an amazing idea for us all during lockdown. We each run a letter of the alphabet using our watches and then upload our Strava (Some of us used Garmin Connect) map to Ian’s Facebook event.
As you can see the result was amazing as it spelt out the name of our 2020 Charity ‘Reading Roadrunners Supporting Parenting Special Children 2020 Charity‘ (Lots of cash raised since lockdown) This was different to anything I’ve ever tried. The hard part was getting the letters a close as possible to something readable without bumping into a tree and avoiding rabbit holes in the process.
Since lockdown our Captains and members have been busy keeping us active by arranging everything from Bingo runs to relays and all manner of virtual runs.
It really is a pleasure to be a member of this friendly active club. Thanks to all involved.
Coming up next Jamie’s Ridgeway Relays and Ian’s Virtual Endure 24
