Run What You Feel
6 runners ran 2.0km to help the Real Junk Food Project in Brighton.
- Tuesday, 27th of July 2021

Every one enjoys a slow start every now and again and, in the spirit of leisurely beginnings, Goodgym Brighton's second group run of 2021 was short but impactful. Having met at Victoria Gardens, the team hop skipped and, in some cases, cycled a stones throw away to the Gardener on Garden Street.
The Gardener is is the latest venue set up by the Real Junk Project a community cafe that helps to combat food waste by repurposing food before it goes to landfill, cooking it and serving it up on a pay as you feel basis open to everyone.
the Goodgym team were put to task clearing, wiping down and reorganizing shelves, sweeping floors, cleaning fridges and wiping surfaces. The Gardener operates a pay it forward type scheme for meals and coffees where you can choose to donate a meal to someone who may be less unable to pay, and some choose to volunteer their time as payment for their meal or to support the Real Junk Food mission.
Many hands made light work of the task and the team headed back to Victoria Gardens for five fast interval laps around the track (avoiding the cycle path). Some runners had races over the weekend so the group run was modified for those recovering from tough miles on the South Downs.
A great group task to stuck into for the first few back!
