How we Scoped in the heat
19 runners ran 3.5km to help the Scope Camden Charity Shop in Camden.

It was a hot sweaty evening, not ideal for a run, but almost 20 of us rocked up at the Francis Crick Centre for a trip to Scope charity shop in Camden.
After a mercifully short run there we got stuck into our key tasks for the evening - sorting the clothes, cleaning the shops and complaining about the heat.
We had a debate about whether to head straight home or head for a slightly longer run along the canal. Luckily it had cooled slightly by the time we finished so most of us decided to go for the canal, while Liz led a few people on a nice stroll home.
Thanks for coming for everyone - at least we avoided Thursday's record temperatures.
