Delivering leaflets in a Roundabout sort of way
11 runners ran 6.1km to help the Roundabout Ltd in Sheffield.

With a bit more of a streamlined team this week due to the sunshine and the Bank Hol weekend we were down on numbers but not on enthusiasm and energy!
We welcomed new runner Rebecca Croft along who came on her first run, give her a CHEER!
This weeks task was with a new charity called Roundabout. Roundabout is Sheffield’s local youth housing charity providing shelter, support and life skills to young people aged 16-24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
We met with Emily from the charity who told us more about the great work that Roundabout were doing and shared with us the evenings plan to deliver as many leaflets as possible around the city to promote the charities Sleep Out event on Friday 8th November 2019 at 92 Burton Road, Kelham Island which gives people the opportunity to support the charity, raise funds and experience first hand what it's like to sleep on the streets on a cold night! You can register here.
We split into 3 teams and headed to a few different areas including Meersbrook and Eccy Road. After a good hour of running and leaflet distribution we returned to base to stretch off and give leftover leaflets to Emily.
Until next time, happy running!
