Having spent a few sessions cleaning inside Holy Trinity Church in the colder wetter weather, it was our time to take on one of the outdoor jobs.

After meeting up in town we welcomed Jack from GGHQ and then sent off Musa and Eshan early for the 40 minute walk, the runners did their warm up led by Sam, leading his first session to complete his run leader training.

After the good 4k run out to Holy Trinity we got started with scraping and sanding the long hand rails leading up to the church doors. The old flaking paint was stripped away and the rails sanded down ready for a fresh coat of paint on a future visit.

We worked furiously until we ran out time and then headed back into town, with a sprinkle of rain to cool us down while we added a few sprint intervals to the run.
