Along with a run through Richmond to the leafy space of Petersham Common, we could be heard expressing countless 'oohs' and counting our blessings as we had the joy of seeing Richmond riverside on a warm September evening with a lovely sunset to match. The fun didn't stop there though as this evening's group run was in partnership with Athletic Brewing, the alcohol free beer brand that GoodGym has started working with. Before setting off from the Tap, Liz shared some info about the brand, their B Corp status, focus on healthy living and quality, as well as their hefty donations to maintaining trail paths. Many things close to our own hearts!

The task itself was to collect rubbish from the roadside and paths along Petersham Road and up Star & Garter Hill. As always we were shocked and saddened by how much there was, and the kind of things people had discarded into these green spaces. Amongst the many bottles there was also a driver's 'L' plate, numerous half-filled paint cans, clothing and a broken traffic cone.

Having collected cans through the task, the team were rewarded with some fresh ones at the end of the session, the 'Upside Dawn' beer from the Athletic Brewing range. A perfect way to end a warm evening in our beautiful town.
