A big shout out to all involved with Grim Up North Running - organisers, marshals, volunteers and runners who helped make my 60th Birthday run at the Glorious Gargrave event such a brilliant day on Sunday, June 20.

Grim (as well as other small businesses) has really struggled through the pandemic (they didn’t qualify for any government assistance) but despite this they have kept going, motivating us all with lots of different virtual events from the Pirate Run and Rainbow Run to name but a few, as well as raising money for charity along the way too.

Gargrave was one of the first REAL events back with the Grim family and as usual was very well organised with not only an amazing medal but also chocolate, beer and Cath‘s delicious cake.
