24 awesome runners ran 5km to help spread the word for the Greenwich and Bexley Hospice!

It was two for the price of one last night. Two events to flyer for, both in the aid of our lovely local hospice. If anyone is interested in the two events you can find out more about them here.

No new people last night but we still started the run with name, headcount and favourite thing, last night was takeaways since it was SAMOSA DAY. Great to hear that Gareth's mum's roast dinner cafe has taken off!

We split into two groups. Ben took a slightly longer distance group to flyer the streets near Vanbrugh Hill while my group stayed local and cleared the leaflets in West Greenwich! My group was promised no hills but since we finished our flyering early and we were running past Point Hill, I thought it would be rude not to as I heard the view from up there was particularly spectacular. So up we went and a few minutes later we were rewarded with the best view in London!

After a few photos we headed back to meet the others for a quick fitness session. A 4 minute tabata (20 seconds on, 10 seconds off) alternating between squat jumps to get those legs nice and strong and mountain climbers to get that core working! It was over in a flash and it was time for a stretch and more importantly our well overdue social!!!

We headed to our lovely local just 5 minutes walk away for a wonderful evening of food and bevs. So nice to catch up with you all, we will try and do this on a more regular basis!

Great work with the task! All the leaflets were cleared and no one got lost! Win win!! See you all next week! Oh and also good luck to those doing the Great North Run at the weekend!
