Four committed GG runners headed down into Pitsmoor tonight to join the Pitsmoor pickers on an evening pick.

We headed down at a really good pace and met with two other pickers to help with the efforts of keeping Pitsmoor litter free, a big task but one we were undaunted by.

With fireworks overhead for Diwali we gloved up and got picking. In the end we managed to get 4 bags of rubbish together and leave ready for the council to collect it.

On route back we did some paired leg work outside Ponds Forge by using the stairs for some 1-2-squats and some hill sprints which had us with shaky legs towards the end. Once back at The Showroom we stretched off and had a look at the fantastic Halloween themed artwork in the venue before grabbing a drink and heading home.
