A big GG welcome to new runners to Julia Cobham and Sarah McPherson for attending their first run! Hope you enjoyed it and will be back for more soon!

Hannah was also on her 100th good deed and therefore donned the now customary wings and helmet for the honor.

*Give em a cheer! *

This week's run was longer than usual and true to Sheff town's wonderful form it was hilly, 20% in some places!

Everyone did a sterling job with regular regroups at the tops of climbs to admire the cities beautiful sights as the sun crested the cities skyline.

This week's task was for Sheffield futures, a fantastic organisation supporting young people. We were helping out this week at Woodthorpe Youth Centre. This week's tasks included:

1- Painting : Primer to window grills x4 people 2 - Painting : Primer to handrail x3 people ( inc wire brushing ) 3 - Painting : Primer to selected areas of sculptures ( inc clear overgrown grass from underneath with shears and wire brushing ) x 2 people 4 - Painting : Primer to goal posts ( inc wire brushing and shears to cut overgrown grass at base of posts ) 2 people 5- Cutting (with shears ) overgrown grass areas on path , around trees and perimeter fencing 1 - 6 people 6 - Clear detritus from car park area 2 people 7 - Clear Astro turf area of debris 1-2 people 8 - Paving weeding - 2 people 9 - Cutting back overgrown bush area at side of football pitch 1-2 people

Everyone got reyt stuck in to the tasks and as the task was a further run we unfortunately had less time than usual on the tasks. We did what we could however which with 30 people on the jobs was still a decent amount!

On route back we threw in some fitness with some step ups and 'Beatles Lunges across the zebra crossing (the cars loved it honest...).

Back at base we stretched off and heard the latest GG happenings past and future.

Until next time, happy running!
