Highly Functioning Cyclepaths
28 runners ran 5.2km to help the SUSTRANS in Sheffield.
- Monday, 2nd of September 2019

26 runners joined us this week for another session with Sustrans to help clear some of the city's cycle paths.
We had three four runners join us for the first time, Callum, Kate, David and Linda, we hope to see you all again soon!
Everything seemed a little bit the wrong way round on our way to the task, back markers at the front, intervals in the opposite direction to where we were going etc, but the group stuck together nicely and we all arrived together, with some of the more speedy members of the pack having covered and extra bit of ground.
Sustrans Simon was on hand to show us what needed our attention, the Virgin Cycle path, the Round Sheffield Run link section and the Road to Nowhere, we split into three teams and began work. The overgrown vegetation and litter were no match for the teams and the full width of several sections of the path soon became evident.
Once we were finished Simon said thanks, and mentioned that the local business owner had popped by to say thank you too. There were several cyclist and runners using the paths who also expressed their appreciation.
We headed back to base, picking up a couple of Strava segments on the way and stopped off just by the Showroom for a combined fitness and stretch session led by Sarah, a great way to finish off the run and make sure we're ready for the next one...
