Tonight we covered a longer distance than we normally do followed by a litter pick of Upton Court Park.

We met at 6:30pm in the car park and with a quick warm up for the walkers we set half the team off on their 2.5km journey to the fire station and back, whilst the remaining team held back for a longer warm up before setting off to the Harvester pub for their 5km route.

With having just completed the Wokingham Half Marathon yesterday my legs were screaming at me to be slow and steady so we did a lampost to lampost walk/run route.

En route we found a stone..not just any old stone but a directional stone dated back to 1741!

19 miles to Hyde Park Corner

Is what the stone read with a mile marker to Slough and 2 to Colnbrook.

Back at base meet up the walkers had already picked up the pickers and bags that we had strategically placed before heading out... and had got to work

It was a little dark in the car park (shame the revamp in upton didn't include more lighting) but despite that the team still managed to collect 2 bags of rubbish.

Well done all and thank you for coming out on a cold cold night!
