7 runners made their way to the BCDP to continue sorting out donations made over the festive period.

Tonight's team included a handful of regulars along with Sheffield tourist Rachel, last week's newcomer Emily, and this week's newcomer Lucy. A nice 'introductory' jog back to the BCDP saw us continuing our work sorting out donations made over the festive period.

Once again we hustled through a hefty amount of boxes and sorted all the items into categorised crates, including: women's toiletries, toothbrushes and toothpaste, stationary, men's and women's accessories, miscellaneous, and a variety of different foods. Some crates were even overflowing with the huge amount of donated items; the biscuit crate even saw a few crumbly casualties as a result of the overflowing piles!

Everyone worked well as a team and the group chat made the time just fly past. Before we knew it we were thanking Peter and bidding farewell for another week. Time was pressing on so we took a brisk and brief run back to base - but not without a good push up the Fitzwilliam Street hill segment again to get that heart rate up! It was a crate effort all round 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️
