Runners play Bingo
Wellington running club took part in a whole month of daily actives that were dreamed up by club admins. Some serious and many more on the lighter side of life but all with the aim of keeping members running during the lockdown.
Thirty challenges to be completed in any order to fill up their bingo card. Ranging from running half marathons, 10k's and 5k's. Silly runs like running in disguise, singing whist running and a backwards mile. Also some community feel good runs such as running to collect rubbish, random acts of kindness and encourage a non-runner out on a run.
So many people achieved personal bests such as their furthest run, most miles ran in a month and thirty days of consecutive running. More importantly people remained motivated to just go out and enjoy the huge benefits running brings both in terms of fitness and mental well being.
So many members to list but these folks were regularly putting a cross on their bingo cards.
