Allotment to do good at Antrim
31 runners ran 8.8km to help the Antrim Allotments in Camden.
- Wednesday, 11th of September 2019
- Led by Pritesh Mistry
30 amazing people joined me in Camden as we headed to Antrim Grove allotments for the last time this year and ran over 7km too!
We welcomed first time runners Niamh and Rosie Y and talked GoodGym's 10th birthday plans as well as the usual health and safety and general intro!
With that done and much bug spray sprayed we split into two groups with Rosie A leading the more keen runners and myself taking the more sedate group. We took different routes but ended up at Antrim not too far apart. We were split out into various task from weeding, to digging, to chopping and the remainder joined Kat outside to do some conditioning exercises!
With the light fading fast we swapped people over to do the fitness work and before we knew it it was 8pm and time to head back. We posed for a group photo in the dark (turns out my camera's night mode is terrible) and then we said our goodbyes. We split the group again but both took the same route, Rosie A leading a primrose hill posse and me taking the rest around the hill. Once back to base we stretched and then some headed to the pub and others home.
Next week we are celebrating 10 years of goodgym - there will be cake!
