Last night 17 of runners ran, 3.9km to and from Tunstall Nursery to help tidy the playground and replant some fruit trees withing the grounds of the nursery.

When we arrived at the nursery we were met by Jane who is always happy to see us, she explained the various task she had for us to complete and we all headed out to our chosen area. There was a lot of laughter and chatter amongst the group as always.

With it being 5th November one of the residents next to the nursery entertained us with fireworks, however the show wasn't as long as we would have expected it to be but at least we assumed they enjoyed it.

We welcomed Stephen from the Steel City (GoodGym Sheffield) who was in London with work but opted to join us on our group run instead of a night in the pub. We also had Lorraine joining us on our group run, Lorraine was one of the recent members inducted into the 50 good deeds club, most of her deed have been through missions, for most of the group it was good to put a face to the name and she vowed to try and make a few more group runs, but her contributions by her missions have been great.

Following completion of the task we warmed up for the time trial with some mountain climbers, before bidding farewell to Jane and taking to the streets for our run around the block.

Congratulation to Andy (01:37) and Dovile (01:51) our new segment champions, their titles are always up for grabs and the challenge will take place after each visit to Tunstall in the furture. At present there are no current task booked for this year so they may or may not end the year as champions.

Next week we our group run will be between 5-6km in total as we head to South Croydon to see Sue, sign up here.

After the last community mission success at Lloyd Park Junior Parkrun another one has been listed for 24th November sign up here

The hot topic at the moment is Xmas there have been some chatter and suggestions about our end of year meal where and when should it be, if you're not in the whatsApp group and would like to be please let me or a member of the task force know and we can add you to the group, we would like to see as many members there and choose a date that is convenient for most so please get involved.
