Dancing in the moonlight
17 runners ran 7.1km to help their local community in Hackney.
- Tuesday, 8th of October 2019
- Led by Joel Wiles
16 Epic Hackney GoodGymers ran 6k to Abney Park Cemetery to shovel and shift a tonne of wood chip to create 50 metres of pathway.
Great to have a top squad along for this evening’s run!!
We nailed down our Hackney socials for the rest of the year!! 29th October Clair’s bid birthday Halloween dress up social 🎂🎂 ** 12th November Mireille 💯** ** 17th December Christmas celebration 🎅🏽**
Get those dates in the diary!!
3k running up to Abney where we met the other half of the crew wanting to get started!! We then grabbed the tools and headed off into the floodlit park!
After a minor directional hiccup rescued by Vinney Hasslehoff saving the day. We got stuck in and shovelled at a great rate with a speedy barrowing effort up and down to drop the contents perfectly off before the spreaders crafted a smooth and robust pathway!
The pathway we help to reinforce each year in Abney are vital for the park to keep the numbers of visitors high and keep the visitors on the path not stepping on the common graves or trampling the wildlife and flowers on the path fringes.
With 50 metres of path reinforced for the winter we downed tools and zipped back to base with a great group run complete!!
See you next week for a visit to the River!!
