Come On & Get Brown On It
15 runners ran 8.6km to help the Castle Hill Community Centre in Ipswich.
- Monday, 1st of July 2019
- Led by Ian Duggan
A warm evening, a 5 mile run and a painting task (with loads of brushes) - it's another Monday in the life of Goodgym Ipswich!
We were off to the Castle Hill Community Centre - a regular destination for us and one of our longest runs right across Ipswich.
On arrival we were greeted by Shane, who was very well prepared for us with lots of brushes and several buckets of brown creosote ready to paint a large outbuilding.
Brushes were grabbed enthusiastically and the group dottted themselves around the building covering two of the walls. Some great teamwork was evident to paint the higher and lower areas - with delicate manouvering required to avoid brown paint splashes on the Goodgym T-shirts.
Within half an hour we had two sides completed and Shane couldn't quite believe the area covered which he estimated would have taken him 2 days on his own. We will return to completed the job soon.
Our return run was pleasant with various people "peeling off" on the way, but we escorted Nicola almost to her doorstep with an adjustment to our usual route.
