It wasn't quite the 'Big British Rake Off' that we were expecting, but we didn't let that or the wet weather dampen our mood!

Our good friend Rob the Parky had an unfortunate incident with a couple of wasps nests on site which led to him being off work with stung and swollen ankles for a while and a part of the park being off limits until the wasps vacate with the incoming colder weather.

It was time for plan B (NOTE THE PUN!), we got secateurs in hand and went to town chopping anything that was less than finger thickness. Rob stayed with one team near the giant boulder to supervise and provide light and instruction.

Tom went with the headtorch crew who were on the move down the mountain bike trail hunting for anything that was overgrowing into the path of any RAD mountain bikers using this fantastic family friendly beginner trail that can be missed when covered and overgrown. If you or family have a mountain bike at home, get it out and pay the trail a visit!

Before thanking Rob and wishing him healing powers for his stings we headed off to the U-Mix centre for some fitness fun times with a quick and punch upstairs/downstairs type session with step ups or squat jumps for downstairs and press ups or clap press ups for the upstairs. Couple rounds of 30s on each and then we headed home keeping heart rates high.

It is def getting to dark season folks so please do remember those head torches and GG lights to keep us safe and seen, thanks!

Until next time Happy Running!
