With some mild trepidation in the air prior to setting off on account of the uphill trend on the way to last nights run, 10 intrepid GG'ers went out into the dark windy streets of Sheffield!

We headed uphill to help COURAGEOUS CRAIG (superstar Sustrans Volunteer and all round good guy) to clear a wet and muddy leaf ridden section of an otherwise fantastic part of the Sustrans National Cycle Network (NCN).

Though the path was dark and the sweeping tough going our tenacious team might light work of the leafy lane, brushing wet, slippery, hazardous leaves and mud over to the side of the path and down the embankment to stop the leaves blowing back on to the path and encouraging some magnificent mulch on the other side of the fence for the trees to feast upon!

No leaf was left unturned and on walking back to the start of the path the impact we had made was evident, giving all a warm glow of the good we had done that eve.

What goes up, must come down and down we did go which helped us all stay together much easier. On return to The Showroom the heavens began to open. Once back at base we had an optional stretch down or quick stair squat set before heading into The Showroom for some drinks and in some cases very casual chips...

Until next time, happy running :)
