Back In Black
4 runners ran 5.0km to help the Upper Norwood Library Hub in Bromley.

Episode 3 of 4 out of our visits to Upper Norwood Library Hub, brought us part 1 of 2 paint jobs!
After meeting at the Bridge House, doing a quick warm up and then properly warming up by running up the hill, George, Nick and I met Katy (who'd run a cool 5k from Brixton 😎) round the back of the Library.
We'd previously done some ivy removal and bramble chopping back in order to get access to the fence which was due a new coat of paint!
Hoping for a bright colour, alas, we were given a pot of black paint (though not as black as vantablack), to coat the fence with.
Luckily we were gifted a nice set of brushes and we got to work, managing to cover a good 4 and a half sections of the fence. We even had a race to see who could paint 3 bars the quickest (Nick won 🥳).
When we were done, Katy ran back to Brixton to clock up a 10k, and Nick lives round the corner so me and George took a (particularly) dark route back through the park. 👻
Nice one guys :)
