Well done everyone that ran tonight, we all got fitter picking up litter!

Tonight we ran to Tudor Grange Park to do a little pick for the Great British Spring Clean, whilst incorporating environmental campaign “Earth Hour”.

Once we had successfully filled our sacks with rubbish, we tried out our one mile time trial route for future runs! We then split into two teams and raced against each other for a quick-fire sprint from one lamp post to another.

Earth Hour is a global campaign overseen by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to raise awareness of environmental issues. It takes place this Saturday 30th March at 8:30pm-9:30pm (local time), join millions around the world to turn off the lights and speak up about why nature matters:

Once we had recovered from our time trial route and quick fire sprints we ran back to base for a well deserved rest.

Next week we will be running to AGE UK to do some painting putting the SPRING back into the shop sign up here.

Hope you all have a good week!
