Seven Superstars met for a lovely evening's run, a good deed for the wonderful Ignition Brewery and we even squeezed in some circuits!


First up, we met at The Bridge House, named our favourite cheese (I think we covered every single type?!) and then had a warm up in the park, thoroughly wearing ourselves out before our run...

It was a 2km jog to Ignition Brewery - they're a non-profit brewery providing training and employment for people with learning disabilities - and the car park out the back is where they host a monthly market (selling goods from some other fab social enterprises too!). It was a bit of a mess, with pallets, wardrobe panels and overgrown plants that needed to be binned.

We met Richard (who incidentally went on one of the first ever GoodGym runs in Tower Hamlets! 🤯) who showed us our tasks:

🪓 Stephen and Alex got to work destroying some pallets pronto, employing some sawing and brute force.

🔨 Carla and David were dealing mostly with some wardrobe sides and doors - thankfully they broke into bits very easily (or maybe Carla and David were just in the right mood 😡)

🌱 And Alison and Clare were handling the greenery, snipping off branches from some overgrown plants.

🗑 All the waste got binned (one of the bins was only opened occasionally due to the indescribable smell...) and Richard even gave us some beer for our troubles! 🍻

SMASHED IT! (literally.)

We went back via Alexandra Rec, partly to view some of our tree planting exploits, but mostly for a ferocious circuits session.

We had a little carousel of burpees, bicycle crunches, squat jumps and russian twists which the team navigated with aplomb 👏 and then we headed back.

Nice one gang!

Loving the puns! I really enjoyed this task. I was definitely in the right mood to smash things and burn some energy for a great cause 😄
