Four fantastic runners ran a total of 4km for a litter pick with Pitsmoor Litter Pickers. It was a lovely mix of long time GoodGymers and some fresh faces.

Elissa met us at the rendez vous point and we quickly got our bags and pickers and went to work. The best thing about a litter pick is you never know what you are going to find, so it was fun to find almost a whole outfit spread across the estate, but just one shoe! We also found a massage table.

The group managed to grab 5 bagfuls of litter from the residential area before we had to turn around and go home, but not before making the most of the local hills! The group smashed 3 hill sprints at lightening speeds and then we took a gentle run back to base, had a stretch and called it a night.

Thanks for another cracking run!
